It has taken me a while to get around to posting this, but anyway. This is the dress I made for my high school formal that was held at a local hotel on the 19th of November last year. It is (very) loosely based on Vogue 8360. I made the scoop in the back a lot deeper and added a little sparkle (Diamantes and Red and clear Swarovski crystals). I was forced to add the bow after the last red zip that was available in my town broke on me, I ended up using buttons as a replacement. There was some kind of problem with a supplier and there were no zips anywhere... I also altered the bodice so it fit my bust better.

It took me about 12 hours in total, and was finished about an hour before the actual formal (I know I left it late..).

All up the dress cost me around $AU60 (including pattern, love sales), the sparkles $AU40.


This was on the night. Please excuse how horrid I look, I was real stressed after a 20 minute nail appointment lasted 2 hours.. I was late for everything including my formal Sad.

Side-ish.

Close up of bodice, kind-of.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.

I may not have gone where I intended, but I have ended up where I needed to be.

I love the back, with that string of bling. Also, that color is gorgeous on you!

That's funny (in a good way) ! My prom was on November 20th and I made my dress too!

I really like the colour, and the beads on the back was a nice touch. Looks great on you and I bet you got a lot of compliments Smiley

Thank-you.  Cheesy I also love my new bangs, I think they look a heap better.

Thank-you, it is funny after taking almost six months to pick a colour I went back to red, which was my original choice before someone suggested pink, then yellow, then I went through the rainbow, lol.

Haha, that is aye! Thank-you. Actually, the only comment I got was from someone's relative (I have no idea who's) about how lovely my back looked in my dress...  Undecided. But my family liked it in the end, so I guess that's all that really matters.


Thank-you again everybody.  Smiley
