1  A formal dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by dragonbait on: May 29, 2005 08:26:19 AM
Graduation at my high school is quite a to-do, and there's a banquet the night before the actual ceremony, so I needed a dress. I had picked up a pattern and fabric in the States last summer, and made this. It looks grey in the pictures but is actually black with tiny cream stripes, in a very retro sort of way.

It's Butterick 4183 view B, and I really liked the pattern, if I ever need a dress in a hurry I'll make this one again.

Back Shot:

The straps and trim are black sheer ribbon, and really added a nice touch, I think. Excuse the wrinkles as these were taken after the banquet itself.

I had mine bright red last summer, but it's normal now.. Dumb school dress/hair codes.

I'm a senior in high school, but I'm not going to the prom. I DO, however, have a graduation dress that needs to be made.

Over the summer, I got this pattern:
and I'm making the view on the bottom left corner.
I got these fabrics:

and also some pretty wine-colored braid to put around the neckline and the dropped waist where the two fabrics meet, but I can't find it right now. I think I'll also add straps, as I'm also.. well endowed.

We've all given a lot of pattern reccomendations here:

We did something kind of like that at my school a couple years ago. You had to make a design out of non-traditional materials:

The bustier was made out of plastic sheeting (the kind you put on the ground when you paint) painted with acrylics, and the skirt and shrug were made out of silver plastic-y tablecloth material (vinyl or something, maybe), and it was all trimmed with shredded lira.

I looked on the website for the show, and some of those things were GREAT ideas, I loved the lawnchair one.
