My school doesn't have "prom..." Instead, we have "formal," which is like a mini version of prom with a dress code...1" straps, knee length dresses, nothing low cut...you get the idea.  Well, I wanted something  EPIC for my freshman year Cheesy  So I decided on a draped bodice, a super colorful dress, and a hi-low pick-up skirt  Grin  I might just be insane...

And thus, this was birthed:

It took 4 days of nearly constant sewing
and 6 hours worth of Glee while sewing pick-ups in

I don't have a whole lot to ramble on about during this post like I normally do, so just sit back and relax Tongue

Our dresses :3 I made mine and the teal short one on the end for my friend

for the first time ever putting in an invisible zipper *without* an invisible zipper foot, I think it turned out pretty dandy

I lurve this draping (I promise it's not that wrinkled!!)

Me and my best friend, Jena, whose dress I whipped out in a day because she was telling me she couldn't afford a dress and wasn't going to go! D:

thanks for looking!!! If you guys want more pictures of detail or have any questions, just ask Cheesy

God bless!  Smiley

I love the dress, especially the contrasting inside and i also think it's great that you made one for your friend too, you both look gorgeous.

Very beautiful dresses.  My favorite color is green so I am drawn to that one especially.  And I think it is really great that you made your friend's dress.

I *love* this contrast of the inside-that makes the whole dress! The pick-up skirt just proves you have more patience than me.  Grin

Wow!! Those dresses are amazing! Unbelievable detail. I'm in love with draped bodices but have absolutely no idea how to make them, (I'm very new to sewing).

Also, I recently made a dress with an invisible zip for the first time without an invisible zipper foot too, and no matter what I do, the seams around the zip seem to be pulling all the time, even when it's just zipped up laying on the ground. Do you have an tips on how to do the invisible zip without the special foot? I'm absolutely awful with zippers. They never cooperate with me. I always get a mass amount of excess thread from the bobbin involved and it always looks like a mess.
