I'm looking to somehow recreate this dress (http://www.tjformal.com/Products/708/32644/Jovani/Jovani-2009-Prom-Dress-40628) minus the beading and with a slit that doesn't run as high.  I've done some sewing myself, but am nervous to try to do something as adventurous as this for my boyfriend's prom.  I was wondering if anyone had any advice on where to start/ a pattern or knew of any seamstresses who could help/ recreate it for me?  I want a really unique dress without paying $500.  Thanks!

Ooh, that is really cute!  Check out the new Butterick patterns.  I /think/ I saw one similar to that.

Sewers are for ninja turtles--seamstresses are for sewing Wink

You could use the bodice and midriff from Vogue 7521: http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V7521.htm. You'd just have to widen the cross straps and make a long, a-line skirt with a slit.
