The dress and color look really nice on you. That's a really cool dress to wear to prom: it's simple, elegant, flattering and you might be able to wear it again. Nice work.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Here's a better view of the bust area:


You can kind of see how I wrapped the dress in a way so that the straps covered the ladies twice to give some extra support.

that's reassuring. i totally doesn't look like you're braless here. and it just so happens that i'm in the B brigade, too! Smiley
i think i'm gonna start sewing mine right now!

You should start sewing one! They're really not that hard. I took me a while though because this was my first time using a serger (I borrowed it from my mom's friend) so I had to figure everything out. I also had to cut and pin the fabric out on the floor since I didn't have a big enough table to work on. But besides that it was pretty simple and easy. I plan on cutting the skirt to make a knee length dress that I can wear whenever.

A bit too long actually. I'm a slow worker. Because I'm a perfectionist, I do things in little pieces because I'm afraid of continuing and messing up. And like I said before, I had to learn how to use the serger.

i love how your glasses match the dress.
oh and how amazing the dress looks on you of course.

yea im making an infinity dress now, and im totally worried about the bra situation. im like an a/b, but like..i dont feel comfortable without a bra. im thinking of sneaking bathing suit cups in when i wear it in backless ways? do you think they'd stay in place?

You know, I thought about doing the same thing! Or buying plain cups from Jo-ann's. But then I worried about them showing through the fabric and never ended up trying it, so I wouldn't know how that would work out. However, it's worth a try if you're already making the dress, and if you tied the straps nice and taut I don't see why the cups wouldn't stay in place. Just check frequently to be sure they aren't poking out! Haha.
