I wanted to be different for my prom. So I was. It's a two part dress based off the pattern 6457 from New Look which I purchased in America on a school trip. By two part I mean there's a fabric dress and the comic book skirt is separate and went on over the head.

This project took about a week of on and off sewing, one hand sewing needle that broke, 4 comic books, sticky back plastic and a hole in my thumb. Because I don't like to use thimbles. It was a labour of love between my mum and it didn't even last 4 hours. Machine stitching does not like to stay in with this, let me tell you. Anyway, photos! (More photos may come later from the professional photographer they had)

This was before any damage and alterations I made to the skirt to make it more flattering.

That is too cool, and it looks so professional! I'm sure people were asking about your dress all night!

Your two-part dress is fabulous and you look gorgeous. Congratulations.

Are you going to make more dresses in the style of the black dress but in other colours to wear the comic book skirt over?

Thank you, but the comic book skirt basically destroyed itself so in the end we had to chuck it out. That is a good idea however!
