I originally made this dress for my college portfolio and then I really liked it so I decided to wear it to prom! I had to take it apart and remake it since the original dress was probably a size 0. So here it is!





Edited to add actual prom pictures :]

Lovely dress!  Smiley  I certainly hope it helped you get into your school of choice!  It looks good on you.

I see you went to Lynbrook.  My best friend in HS went there, and I went to Prospect.  Kind of funny to run into a "neighbor" in the World Wide Intarwebs! Wink  ('course, we both graduated back in '98 ... gah, do I feel oldish!)

I love it, especially the back and how open it is. Very sexy. Also, I really really enjoy the face that the girl in front in the purple dress is making in your group picture.

No wonder you liked this dress. I think the pattern is very sophisticated and the colors complement it really well!

Wow, I wasn't crazy about it until I saw it on you and then I knew exactly why you picked that fabric and colors, it looks great on you!  Not only great sewing, but great job knowing exactly what would look best on you.  I hope you had a great time at prom.  I love seeing all the prom dresses you guys are able to make here, simply amazing.

That's a stunning design. I like the contrast between the geometric nature of the fabric and the softness of the skirt. The back also looks really interesting.

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.
