I know it's a little late, ok a LOT late, but oh well. I made this dress for a friend to wear to prom. It was originally going to be backless and have a different top part but she decided it was too risque. risque-smishque I say. Anyways, so this is the more modest version. I painted my hands various hues and then made the prints all over the black fabric, then sewed it. It's sort of different as far as prom dresses go but I like it. I ended up wearing duct tape to prom, so I suppose might have been a teensy-bit more out there...

Super cool! As someone who sold formal wear for a while, I can tell you that there are LOTS of girls that end up going in the same dress, this one is sure to make you stand out!

Looks great. The double strap is a nice feature. Obviously you're not shy about mixing media! You go, girl!

I love it!  When I saw the first picture, I thought the handprints were just gold and silver...then scroll down...and color!!!  I wouldn't have skipped prom if I would've had a dress like that!   Wink

Great idea!

It's been a dream of mine since childhood to get a yellow pickup truck, hanprint it in rainbow like that, and then donate it to a summer camp...

But that's unrelated.

It's a beautiful dress.
