Title: Gucci dress = my prom dress
Post by: KiSSedBYaRoSe on May 15, 2006 09:32:59 PM
well, its really late and i gave up on doing homework..decided i would finally post my dress! prom was last thursday, it was an amazing time..even though it ended up pouring rain all night!! :( but we had a blast.

anyways, heres the dress--its designed after the one jessica alba wore by gucci. one of my family friends helped me make it! the material was beaded silk, with an ivory satin underneath. the black was surprisingly just black spandex--cheap and stretchy! the beaded fabric was pretty hard to sew with because the machine wouldnt go through the beads, it had to be hemmed by hand..AND we ended up having about 3 days to make the dress--i literally picked it up at 4 pm the day of my prom! its a long story..but all was good, and so here it is, hope you like it!

me and my boy (i know..hes short lol)

love you grandma

the back (you could almost see my crack--we had to safetypin it to my underwear! ahah)

me, my best friend Sophia and the boys

here it is on jessica alba

comments welcome!
thanks, caitlin xox

Amazingly beautiful.  I wish I had known how to sew when I was in highschool.  Great dress.

The dress looks gorgeous!, great job.
Just a tip next time you sew beaded silk, or anything beaded mark where the stitching line is, crack the beads with pliers along that line and a bit either side so the presser foot on the machine can move the fabric easily.
(warning: when cracking beads put your hand over the pliers so that beads don't hit you in the eye or face)

That is gorgeous! Have to agree with serramagk, your version is better!

I agree that your version is way better.  Yours is very sexy while the other is kinda skanky.

Post by: catTM on May 16, 2006 02:42:26 AM
Wow, what a great job. I agree with the others, your version is better (and very similar to the original, I'm really impressed). The original almost looks like the fabric is pulling since it's so tight on the backside. Yours has a much more natural fit.

I like how you did the lace on the front better than the original. The original looks like they said, "Oh... and it needs a little something else." Yours looks intentional.

Rockin.

You did a great job recreating this dress - although, I like your version so much better!  Beautiful dress and I"m glad to hear you had such a great time.

wow! you did an AMAZING job re-creating that dress! its few and far between that you find (or maybe just that i find :P ) re-created dresses to be so accurate. You look like a star!

i actually like your dress better than the original!! its a curvy and sophisticated look, whereas ms. alba's is more "fashiony" but makes her look like she has bizarre proportions (or maybe its just because she is so skinny she might break).

did i mention i love your dress?


Title: Re: Gucci dress = my prom dress
Post by: tickleagangster on May 19, 2006 11:16:29 AM
I loooove your version! It's much more classy and elegant than the original. You did a wonderful job! Did you use a pattern, or just wing it??


Title: Re: Gucci dress = my prom dress
Post by: katherine.m on May 19, 2006 05:12:13 PM
Your dress turned out super nice. It's a really accurate recreation of the original, but I like that it's not exactly the same. I agree with stereoette, I like yours better!


Title: Re: Gucci dress = my prom dress
Post by: KiSSedBYaRoSe on May 19, 2006 07:44:46 PM
thanks for all the comments guys!

tickleagangster--i didnt use a pattern, but we made a mock-up of it first to get the right fit before cutting the real material

Love the dress! It looks amazingly like the original one, and I've seen and touched the real one, and i think your version is better...

Agreed.

Ah. The real one isn't even lace. It's like a sort of mesh-y thingie. Yours is better. <3

that is fantastic!! i always see celebrities wearing things that i would absolutely love to make, but i always lack the motivation - and sewing skills - to actually do it.  the dress looks fabulous on you!  bravo, bravo!!

I love Jessica Alba and honestly.. you're dress is more flattering then hers! Great work!

WARNING: This is not sheer flattery.  I sincerely think the view about to be disclosed here.

I like your dress more than Jessica Alba's.  I think you look classier.

Nicely done.  Great JOB!

Post by: izzy_guns on June 09, 2008 03:03:27 AM
Sorry to say it, but I think another model would more suitable for your type of body... I mean, Jessica Alba is very slim and the original Gucci dress is probably made exactly for her.
