I made my dress for homecoming this year (with the much appreciated help from my mum), and let me just say...before you buy a pattern, make sure its going to fit your body type.  I had bought the pattern, sewed the lining, everything was going as planned...and then when the final pieces were going together, and I tried it on, I realized because of my stupid boobs, the halter top fit weird and was too open...eventually we found a way to tack it down 30 minutes before I had to leave...but still...just a thought...

here it is though, in case you were wondering

even with the last minute troubles you had, it still looks gorgeous!

choosing styles to flatter your body type can be a frustrating thing- especially when you have your heart set on something... I can't wear styles like what you chose - cos I have no boobies... I'd love to be able to wear halter tops and that sort of cut, but it just looks so wrong on me!
I also cannot pull of real long shirts... just makes me looks even shorter than I am... (BLAH!)

beautiful work, and the color choice suits you:)

i too, feel your pain.

My mom and I made many of my homecoming dresses waaay back in high school. And the first step in figuring out what i wanted was either trying something on and finding a similiar pattern, or finding a pattern I loved and finding something similiar to try on....at least then you have a general idea of what youre getting into  Undecided
(this is how i avoided the halter dress catastophe!)

seriously though, you look beautiful!
