haha oh wow! so many comments!!! thanks so much you guys!!!

yes i used a pattern, but the exact one is lost in my big box o' patterns somewheres around here... vogue or mccalls...

to the comment about hillary duff, yeah i get that a lot. that, and molly ringwald, and rachel mcadams (my hair has changed since then, so maybe thats why)

i did find the fabric like this, there were tons and tons of different tie dye types but this fit the best to what i had imagined.

the eyeshadow is from hot topic, a very bright fire engine red that looks somewhat magenta if applied with the right mix of pink glitter..
the shoes are from walmart, although i'm sure that they've cycled them out by now (bastards)

and as for the exboyfriend? YES he is a tool, and i will try to lure him near a stairway asap Cheesy:D:D

more fashionably late posts of clothes i've made coming soon...

So this is the dress I made for prom in May 2006. I went stag so I didn't have to worry about matching anyone!
(Although I did have enough extra fabric to make a tie. Where did I put that?)

It was a big hit and the boy I was crushing on loved it (he's sort of one of those hippie flower child types), and no one else had one like it! That's the whole point of the prom dress, eh?

The only images that I have of the dress are from Pre-Prom picture taking, my apologies for the lack of quantity and detail!!

Yours truly, wearing the dress, and my best GF Hillary (totally amazed by my crafting and posing skills).

Me, again. The dress didn't fit quite right, so I had a little fabric-roll action going on around the waistline. It was my first dress... Lessons learned. Here you can see some of the accessories I made with more of the extra fabric I had. I still wear some of those today!

One last (slightly blurry) look at the dress. This is the kind of attitude one must have while wearing a tie-dye dress!

I get a TON of questions, messages, emails, WHAT HAVE YOU regarding this dress. I used a basic dress pattern, you can use any you want really. It isn't exactly tie-dye either, I batiked some plain cotton linen/fabric to get this tie-dye effect and to maintain the really saturated colors, and then sewed cut the fabric and sewed it together. That resulted in the tie-dye pattern not matching up at the seams.

Here is an instructional website on how to Batik fabric - you can get some really great effects with this technique!! http://www.pburch.net/dyeing/howtobatik.shtml

Theoretically, you could make a Tie-Dye dress by making a plain-white dress with fabric that will take to dying and then tie-dye the dress by traditional methods. This will give you a seamless tie-dye pattern.

I hope you found this useful to your crafting desires!
