For the top, I just used regular 5/8" elastic and a zig-zag stitch. I stretched the elastic evenly as I fed it through the machine so when the elastic sprung back it formed the pretty wrinkles. Does that make sense? And yeah, I made some thin, pink piping to accent the waist. That's exactly why I added the pink, Randommarble. I really wanted to wear white, but I didn't want it to look like a wedding dress. I love how it turned out. Thanks.

my mom is going to make my prom dress (she is an amazing seamstress..... though i may help a bit so i can do it on my own next year)

i am using simplicity #5238 style C... the fabric is black, and the overlay is going to be white laceish.... i am also too voluptuous for strapless, so we're changing that to have straps....

it's my boyfriend's sr year, and only my jr, so my dress is matching his tux.... its all white w/black "trim" .... kinda hard to explain but it's really cool looking Smiley

i just noticed that thats my homecoming dress

I made my dress for junior prom last year. I'm really proud of it because I designed it myself and I didn't use a pattern or anything. The material is cheap but nice polyester satin.


It took me about a week to make it. I know I should have given myself more time. I will this year. It was really fun to make, and the skirt was really fun to dance in because there's so much material in it and it was so light and billowy. The one thing I don't like about it is the back. I have a pretty unusually shaped back, so I should have spent more time on getting that to fit right. Well, I learned my lesson.

holy crap!!! you made that without a pattern ?? WOW! I envy your talent! Even if I made it with a pattern, it wouldn't seem so flawless!! supa dupa! Smiley

Wow, that dress is absolutely beautiful.  Wink

I want to make a ball (er.. prom) dress for my friend. Her ball isn't for AGES. Shes a year too young at the moment, so its not for like.. 15 months. But I'm a huge procrastinator and I want it to be amazing, and I'll probably be making the pattern too, so I'll need loads of time.

She wants a halter neck, and handkerchief hem. What kind of material would be good for that?

I was gonna make my prom dress this year and I have a blue material with sequins on it. The dress I was gonna make is the pink one with the left sleeve like on the white one and one of the things hanging down from the middle like on the short red one. What do you guys think?

since it's only a month-ish away from when you originally posted, this may be too early. BUT... how difficult is this? i absolutely LOVE the white one and the light blue one, would probably combine the two (mostly like the light blue, but with the middle fluffyness)

for my junior prom 2 years ago i used this popular McCalls pattern to make my dress:

http://img.sewingtoday.com/cat/40000/itm_img/M3959.jpg

i wanted to do it in lime green with bright blue tulle (how awesome would that have looked?!)... buuut my mom was really fond of the orange and pink, annnnd i was really low on fundings at the time so she helped me pay for the fabric since she liked it: so here are my blurry pics:



i know... it looks just like the pattern cover. not very original Sad

it took me a weekend to do. it's a fairly easy pattern. im sure a lot of you have seen it in the McCalls pattern book... my first time trying a zipper though and the last... but it all turned out well... looking back now i wish i didnt put the silly straps on though

Wow, now I'm tempted to do something with lime green and bright blue tulle. Eep! It would have been amazing. But I like the way your dress turned out, too =)
