Hello everyone!
I have sewn a few project before but they were all reconstructed. So now I finally got me some actual fabric and a whole lot of mistakes later, this is what came out!

It's not perfect and there are a lot of defects that aren't in the picture but I think it was a tough project and so I'm happy with what came out... I'd love to hear what you think!

Very pretty, I really love the detail on the skirt section. Very pretty fabric. Good Job! Grin

That is gorgeous! What pattern did you use?

I am starting to sew prom dresses and hope it turns into a dress business.
I have sewn costume dresses and a ball dress so far.

Wow!  The collar, and the ruffled-up bit on the skirt, these make the dress very unique (in a wonderful way!).  Congrats!

Thanx everyone! I didn't use a pattern, except for the collar part which was a double half-circle with a hole in the middle  Cheesy
It was mostly just sewing something, trying it on, changing it, trying it on again, changing it again etc. It took forever and the outcome (as always in these cases) was far from perfect as it had old needle-holes and such. But that's how you learn!
