I made a dress!







If I get asked, I'm going to wear it to my homecoming dance next month. Smiley

OH. MY. GOD!!

that dress is AMAZING!! love, love, LOVE it!!
plus, I thinks it looks great on you Wink

is there any chance of you making a tutorial about it? or post where you got the pattern and stuff from?
I'm really a beginner at sewing, so I'm not really sure how things work... so I'd love to try this dress one day.

What a great job you did on this dress! I say, don't wait to get invited to homecoming--do the asking yourself! That dress, and you, are too pretty to stay home!  Grin

Wow, thanks so much everyone! You've all totally made my day.
Nad- I based it off the Simplicity 2693 pattern. But I wanted 4 ruffles instead of 3 so I had to do some math and change the lengths of the other three ruffles to make it even. I also added sleeves as the original pattern was strapless, but they were easy. You could totally make it though! I'm not an advanced sewer (seamstress?) myself and I did it. Smiley Good luck!

And thanks again for all your comments everyone! You've made me feel so good. Smiley

If I can make this dress for my prom this year (last year in high school), I'm gonna save SO MUCH MONEY!! Cross your fingers, guys, and wish me luck! =D

Sooo beautiful! Did you use a pattern, or just go with it? It is beautiful and so are you, and I'm sure you'll get asked Smiley

But really, you should go out either way to show off that beautiful garment!
