Alright, so I may have strayed from the pattern some. The bodice is completely different. I had to take it in about 6 inches in the waist! I must have been completely self-loathing when I bought a size 18.



Here's the pattern picture.



Here's me! Have to love mirror pics.

 

Pointy-toed shoes required.



...And the back! This is more like the color.



I still need to make a few small alterations, but it's basically done!

I would wrap myself in lace all the time, if I could. This is going to be my prom dress, this year. It's my first prom, so I didn't want to end up with the same dress as everyone else, or spend more than I needed to.

I got the lace for free from the theater where I work. I'm the head costume designer, so when they get in boxes and boxes of free bolts of fabric, they don't mind if I take one or two. I get all my great fabric that way!

Thanks much, Milly! Actually, I'm probably going to make the shorter dress in this deep raspberry-colored lace I bought on eBay (17 yards for $25!!!). Originally it was going to be my prom color, but then I found this pink and decided on it instead.

If you do make it, be sure to send me the finished pics!

Thats insanely gorgeous! I really love the fact that it has sleeves...which are so hard to find on formals. I can't even explain how in love I am with your dress! I'm sure everyone will be completely envious of it.  Great work!

omg, i am in love with this pattern too. i really want to make the short version. i dont know what exactly it would be for, i just feel as though i must have this dress. i suppose i could wear it for homecoming or prom or something. or just randomly wear it when i want to feel beautiful. but yeah, im worried about fabric if i make this. doesn't the pattern call for some special double edge scalloped lace or something? i couldnt find any like that. but then again i wasnt really looking.

anyways, you and your dress look wonderful, great job!

It calls for double-edge scalloped lace, but you could work around that. Really, I think you could use any sheer fabric you want (although I love the way lace looks) and use bought trim. I almost did just buy lace and trim that matched well, but I got lucky with the pink and raspberry lace.

Also: Thanks all! I'll post prom pics after it's all over.

Oh I fell in love with this pattern when I saw it in the Vogue catalog and HAD to buy it several weeks ago! Not that I have an occasion to wear it or anything, but ya never know! I love it b/c it is such a glamorous 1920's look, and I'm a Jazz Era fashion fan. You did a great job on yours! Yay!!

The Jazz Era is my favorite too!

Prom went really well. I had a sweet date who wouldn't let me pay for anything (except the tickets, but I insisted.. after all, he graduated last year and it wouldn't be fair for him to have to buy tickets to a prom that wasn't even his) and, when he found out that I made the dress myself (I didn't tell him at first because I hate forced compliments) he couldn't stop telling everyone we talked to. He actually brought over some of his friends and said "Hey there, sweetie. Give us a spin." I was on a cloud all night. Pictures should be in this week, so I'll make sure to scan.

Oh yeah, and I was one of the only ones there who didn't have the same dress as someone else. Seems like everyone had the same style in different colors.

hey, I might actually have a reason to wear this dress now. In school we have to do a project about what time era we would like to live in and why. We also have to make some sort of product. I was thinking of doing 1920's (that is the proper era for the dress, right?) and making this dress. What do you think?

I got my mom to make this for a school dance a couple of years ago, but I think yours looks much better than mine turned out.  Let's just say don't go for black lace on a black underdress with the long sleeves, looked much too funeral-like.  I might shorten the sleeves if I ever want to wear it again, and make a lighter color underdress.

Great job again!

Wow, it worked ! Anyway, I used an invisble zipper instead of a regular one.  I didn't have scalloped lace, so I bought extra, cut out the flowers, and handsewed them to the edges of the neckline, armholes and skirt hem.  I'm sorry you can't see the detail, but I was in need of a little black dress, that i didn't do another color.  I'm so pleased at the result that i want to make another one out of regular fabric instead.

That looks great! Hey, I was wondering, what's an invisible zipper? It sounds intriguing. I'm not very experienced with sewing so I don't know a lot of these things.

an invisible zipper is just a thin zipper that's usually plastic and the pull is painted to match.

They're not the big huge clunky zippers that are on jeans normally, but the smaller thinner ones that you see on skirts and nice dresses.

They're pretty common, honestly.

Era Vera,
check out the invisible zippers at your friendly local fabric store. It installs a little differently from a normal zipper and uses a special presser foot on your sewing machine, but instead of a visible zipper where your zipper is, it just DISAPPEARS into the seam! (I love 'em, but use them only in places where the zippers won't have a lot of stress on them,...sheathes, etc)

Certainly don't feel stupid! If you live long enough you'll see all kinds of "NEW and IMPROVED" stuff, and it's hard to get it all in one gulp! Hopefully, we learn something new everyday. Smiley

Yeah, invisible zippers are set into an open seam, so when you zip it up, the seam closes along with the zipper, so all you see is the seam, NOT the zipper.  There is more work involved into setting a zipper like this,(like basting before sewing, another presser foot, etc), but the result is so worth it.  It's a beautiful clean finish.

Wow, that turned out beautifully. I agree that it's gorgeously 1920s. I'm tempted to try, although lace frightens me. I still haven't graduated from stitching stuff out of bedsheets.

I have seen a picture of one of the shorter versions made up in the June/July 2002 British "Vogue Patterns" magazine.  Ever since I have been hoping I could develop the skills to make it!  I love this pattern and I love your dress, you look wonderful!

This is funny. I bought this pattern last fall in hopes of making it my wedding dress. Unfortunately, I didn't buy the right size. The slip fit nicely and I was encouraged, but then I got to the lace and it went down hill from there. I ended up ditching the project completely and buying a dress on clearance at Kaufman's (local dept. store).  Tongue

But... your dress looks gorgeous. Great job! I hope you had a great time at your prom. (making everybody jealous with your totally unique gown, I'm sure) Wink

I thought this pattern was great, and it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. It's a lot of work, though. And the lace requires some patience.
