Hi everyone!
I (finally) worked out how to make the dress that Bella wears to the prom in Twilight.

Heres the dress I was trying to recreate:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_l2bY4LmWy2g/SaIyMkVn2XI/AAAAAAAAAeU/kmM1X37QMVw/s1600-h/bella+edward+charlie+prom.png

Heres my version (the halter bit doesnt really gape like that, but for some reason it did in the photos I took. grr)


This one shows the neckline better, but its a phone pic so sorry bout the blurryness!


Its fun to spin in, it fly's out! Made myself really dizzy for this pic though lol  Grin


Heres the back, which is annoying because its low - so I cant work out what bra to wear with it. May have to sew something to fit with it.


I used the wrong kind of fabric, but I still like it Smiley I used a stretchy fabric, but upon closer inspection I think I should have used chiffon.
I think I may need therapy for this twilight addiction lol  Roll Eyes

These are my footprints, so perfect and so small. These tiny footprints, never touched the ground at all.
Not one tiny footprint, for now I have my wings. These tiny footprints were meant for other things.

It's ok, the original version gaps too.  Extremely hard to avoid with this type of neckline.  You did a nice job on it.

have you seen the "petal" bras? That's what I'd do. they are basically a small petal shape that sticks on to prevent um pointy-ness. lol. Washable and reusable too! I've been planning to get some for awhile just never seem to when I'm at the store. I've seen them at wal*mart and now's the time to check as they seem to be a summer item. they also make a backless bra too.

Your dress looks cute! And I think I see what you mean about the fabric but I think you're is going to be way more comfy. great representation!

Looks pretty accurate!

Maybe try sewing an old bra into the dress? I did that for my prom dress back in the day...
