Having only sewn ONE article of clothing before this, I had this incredibly "smart" idea to sew my prom dress (mistake number 1)! Instead of going safe with a basic tube dress or shift dress, I also decided to make my dress look like the one here http://www.edressmeprom.com/prom6216.html# (mistake number 2). Except I changed all the curves to angles Grin

So after a whole ton of sweat and late nights (I started a little more than a week before - with NO pattern) and help from my mum - she helped me hem the skirt and sew on the hooks and eyes (because I don't know where to get invisible zippers and even if I did I don't own an invisible zipper foot) because I got lazy Tongue - here's my dress!

Oh, and I only have these not very good photos because the camera died on me!!!!





Okay, I admit that's not the best picture of the front but the other pictures make me look fat Tongue
Here's a closer look at the top (with my really really pretty friend Cheesy)



Leave your comment (good or bad!) Cheesy

Thank you Hollistercobabe and waiting4beckett! I'm quite proud of it myself and the only thing wrong with it is the button at the top of the back kept popping open! Tongue Thankfully the hook kept it closed and I have good friends to help me Grin
