This is the dress I made for my year 12 ball (the Australian version of prom). Technically it's the second, I began with making a floor length dark blue one, which I basically stuffed up but no longer liked enough to fix. So I made this in 2 and a half weeks

I'm pretty happy with it, there is a huge raw edge at the join of the skirt and the bodice, due to the large number of layers (something like 9, plus the folds in the bodice). It's made of chiffon and a cotton/spandex blend (i think).
I also didn't hem it, namely because I knew it wouldn't look any good. So I used a product called fray-stoppa, which did a good enough job. I was a bit worried about the effects of dancing and thus a lot of sweating, but it held up very well Smiley
From the back (my friend can lace a lot better then I can Tongue)

And the detail of the invisible zip and ribbon. I'm surprised at how easy it is to put in an invisible zip, but I can never get it straight!

Plus a picture of the night Smiley

Very nice!  I'd love to see how that fantastic back looks while it's on you.  Plus, I love your hair in that photo!

I do actually have a photo of the back, but it was taken while i was dancing and had been for a while, so definitely not at its best Tongue
