i am late posting this(prom was the 3rd of july) but better late than never!

As soon as i had gotten into sewing, i knew i would make my own dress. the night got closer and closer and all i knew was that i wanted a tartan one.

in a stroke of luck i found a massive kilt in a record/vintage odds and ends shop and used that.

The dress is lined with an old bed sheet and has contrast details of bright pink ribbon.i had a pink bow in my hair and pink nails. i wore black knee high socks with tiny white bows(i added myself),white trainers and a union jack bag with a chain handle.and a vintage french silf scarf as a wrap aaaand leopard print sunglasses,pearls and gold chains as bracelets and a kilt pin on a chain.

phew!


before-front

before-back


full length(and how i will wear it now Smiley ).i didnt wear the jeans to prom and wore the chains on my wrists. i got the jacket to wear on the night but it was far too hot in the end


in this one you can see my necklace,some of the wrap,my sock and my shoes. and the fact i became a flamingo in pretty much ALL the pics....


you can see the bag,chains on my wrists and more of the wrap/scarf in this one

I think the fact i come from a punk background and i enjoy the whole london fashion thing really shows Smiley
we british do prom punk style!!(well,just me really)
