So I made my prom dress, I didn't realize that I had so much pink but people complimented me so I don't feel as bad being a big girl in such a bright Easter pink.... Well anyway, here you go:










I didn't actually make the shawl, I bought it earlier that day, I was surprised it matched!


Chiffon on charmeuse


Elastic is a big girl's best friend...



and here's the hand beading on the front and back of my left shoulder...

Well thank you for looking, you all have a blessed day...

That is so pretty.  I love that delicate shade of pink, and the shawl/stole is beautiful with it.  You look lovely. I'm not surprised you had so many compliments.

It's beautiful, you're beautiful and you did a great job on your dress!
Do you have close up shots of the beading you put on the shoulder? It's hard to see it in the picture with your friends.
Pink suits you! Wear it more often!

I realize that, but you can't see how it looks on the dress on her in the last two pictures and the group picture has it covered up by her shawl!

I didn't read all the replies but I wanted to tell you great job and you look beautiful and your sewing skills (at age 17-ish) far surpass mine (at age 40-ish). Pink and brown go together. Pink girls look pretty in brown and brown girls look  pretty in pink.

That is just a beautiful dress- the beading is stunning! A what a lucky coincidence that the pretty shawl matches. That pink is such a complement to your pretty skin.

That fits you perfectly. I like the sparkly detail on the shoulder, it's a nice touch.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

You looked awesome! Great job, you went the extra mile with beading your dress and all. This brings back memories of the dress I sewed for my junior prom.
