Allo!  Grin Thankfully, prom is finally done! Between working full time, going to school, finals, etc... the quality is definitely lacking. But it's what I wanted and I had fun making it. Way more fun than last years (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241392.msg2659590#msg2659590) though I think more people liked that one. Oh well! What can you do?

Off-hand I can't quite remember what the pattern is, but it's a Vogue, with a few alterations for size and fabric weight.

I apologize in advance for the sh*tty pictures!

The front (the five little girls next door were teaching me how to pose):


The back:


A few of the girls:


Just for fun:

Prom was shaping up to be a bit icky when my date bailed last minute, my boyfriend was too old to go, after prom plans fell to pieces and limo prices sky rocketed... Thankfully, my best friend Lesley jumped in to save the day as a perfect date and supplier of our mode of transportation: our very own short bus.

Any questions, comments, or criticisms are more than welcome!

Love love love!  Kiss

HA! Short bus, great idea!  That's on par with my prom dinner at Old Country Buffet.  (Totally hilarious!)

LOVE the dress!  So elegant!  Great job!

I love these pictures. I think they give off a nostalgic sort of vibe. The dress is beautiful, too.

I think it looks great. To me, you look like some kind of 1920s/30s Hollywood movie star -- your hair and the style of the dress. Very cool.

So seriously? You rode a short bus to prom? That's hilarious.  Cheesy
