This is my first year going to prom!
I'm only a sophmore so i deffinetly dont want to spend the time or money on making a dress
(or buying a new one)
My G-ma use to own a dress shop in the late 70's so she has like 4 dresses left over and there is this black one I LOVE! it supa cute but some of its sequins are falling off and the bow has faded Sad I'll deffinetly have to alter it and lose 10 pds.

I've also already have ideas for making my dress next year!

I'm really excited Grin

Heavily inspired by a previous poster (no prizes for guessing who!) I started on a lacy dress. It's definately inspired by rather than copying from, as I've used the lace quite sculptedly (haha, I invented a word too Tongue), but thanks for the inspiration skarinja!

Anyway, my right boobie is done, all handsewn. I'm just hoping it fits me as well as it does the dress-form!

I'd like to join! I've only got the boning in the bodice lining, but it
a start. Can't wait to see what everyone else is making.

ALRIGHT! Yesterday I went and got my fabric/pattern. At first I wanted to design my own but... it's just junior prom. And I've never done anything THIS advanced before. So, I'm following pattern V2929. I'm eliminating the contrast fabric, and doing it all in a nice shiney appricot.  I love the movement of the dress.

But now I actually have to start working? What?!

Prom dress time =]=]
My school has a cruise for the end of the year, and as I live in London it's on the Thames. People usually wear cocktail dresses. I'm completely stumped on how I want my dress...
I'm making my best friend's dress, which is basically a simple strapless dress with lace details, based on this dress I made:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222227.msg2397117#msg2397117

I want something a bit different, so I was thinking, I could do something similar to that purple dress, but in a more formal fabric. Or I could do something completely different.
Any ideas?
