Well, I seem to have been an absentee from Craftster for a while.... Undecided ooops. So I figured it was time to post some work from the last.... 10 months..... Cheesy

Last year, about the end of October I decided it would be "fun" to make four, yes, you heard right, four dresses for the school Christmas Social (a bit like prom, but in winter). It took a while, and I spent most of the first part of December (the dances were the week of December 18th) running about in a panic thinking I'd never be finished in time!  Cheesy But, all worked out in the end, and I managed!

This is the professional group shot we got taken.


Unfortunately, because all the girls have their dresses, I've only got single photos of my dress (which is a very altered Simplicity 4258)

Front:


Back (complete with box pleat  Smiley  ):


Close up detail of buckles:


My dress was designed after one of my male friends dared me to wear a kilt to the social, so I did my own version!  Cheesy

The blue one (also Simplicity 4258) and the red one (Butterick 6534) were mostly "invented" by the girls who are wearing them, but the white dress (Butterick 4915) is meant to be in Marylin Monroe style, with the addition of a little lace.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks! Cheesy
I could barely belive it myself at times!
I'm happy you like the buckles, I was really unsure of what to use there, and eventually just gave up and got a friend to choose for me!

Wow! They're all so great! I love all the buckles as well. That's so cool.

On the white one, is the waist part a printed fabric or something else? Like beading or sequins or something? I can't quite tell, but it's beautiful!

Thank you muchly!

The waist on the white dress is lace. I got it from this great haberdashers in London (via the magic interweb) called MacCulloch & Wallis
(www.macculloch-wallis.co.uk).
