3  shiny red prom dress w/ flower sash !! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by green.turtle on: September 09, 2006 07:32:09 PM
haha, this post is a bit late, but here it goes!

my mom made my prom dress (i know, i should've done it myself! i will try this time)... well, i traced the pattern, cut the pattern, and cut out all the fabric. =)

okay, so the dress was new look 6557, made with shiny red satin fabric that i picked. (i was going for red or green, but the green i found didn't look very good) the sash idea was from the march (or may?) cutting edge magazine.

this is the fabric we used. tulle (which we didn't use in the end), satin, my sash, and lining

the front of my dress

the side. you kinda see how the sash works. =)

a jordy bag my mom made at the last minute to hold my cell phone and camera!

=) & <3

<<<edited to remove hotlinked image>>>
i'm planning to make my prom dress in the blue halter style or the pink halter style.

i want it to be assymetrical, on the bottom like this:

would it look alright if i just made it the skirt part, since the dress has the empire waist (i think that's what it's called...) and all the assymetrical dresses i've seen while surfing are all empire waist (or whatever it's called)

or else i want the skirt part to be tulle.

i'm not quite sure what kind of fabric would look good with that dress. =/ any suggestions? i'm not very familiar with many of the more... special-occasion fabrics either.

that's about it =D

i make my cards out of origami!

last year's (ha. my desk is as scattered as my brain .. unfortunately)

new & improved! they're SPARKLY now -- This year's

the flash really washes out the textures and colors, but you all get the basic idea.

enjoy =)

WOWW. i love it the snowmen. they're adorable.
