This is extremely late. I designed and made my own grad dress for this last May. Of course, everybody kept freaking out because I started so "late". I told everybody I knew so that I had to hold myself to it. I didn't start my dress until January or February and everybody was worried I wouldn't finish it on time. Except for me. Tongue

I enjoy saying I had a designer grad dress. Tongue

Anyway! Here's the dress!

Front::


Back::(also hair which was done by my lovely boyfriend's cousin)

(I had wished I could've used wider ribbon but I didn't have any)

Hair::


And just some others for fun::




And me and my boy::


Me and my besties:: (three of my boyfriend's cousin, BF's sister, two of my cousins, and a girl I grew up with, and my BF Smiley)

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

As soon as I saw this I thought it looked familiar, but didn't remember reading this thread. Then I realized I saw it on LHC.  Cheesy Amazing dress. The colour looks wonderful on you.

Usually I like to have things done WAY ahead of time, but this didn't bother me. Actually, it wasn't finished completely until the morning of my grad. haha The train part of the lining was longer than the rest and my mom wouldn't cut it so I had to get my boyfriend's cousin to cut it on that day once I had it on. lol
