the board doesn't use html, it uses a different kind of code - you need to post images like this - [img ]http://url goes here[/img ] minus the spaces.

2  inspiration for those creating their prom dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by starlette13 on: March 03, 2006 03:29:34 AM
so, this is what I made a few years ago for grad
I realized i have yet to post a finished project here on craftster, and this is one i'm particularily proud of, so there we have it!

i used a pattern but completely altered it so there's no point in saying which one it was (translation - i don't remember and i'm lazy).

the length was imposed by the lace - it wasn't long enough to make it floor length - but i liked the length it was - it was unique and a tad retro - totally me.

the underfabric is the most HORRIFIC purplepink 80s type prom dress fabric, but the black lace over it makes it just the right shade.

quite a bit of it was handsewn by my mom and i the week before grad at rugby provincials - it amused my team mates to see me natter at my mom about making the stitches strong and letting me do the 'important' parts...

finally finished the night before grad around 3am.
i think it was worth it.

the first picture - shows a closeup of the lace (which i fell in love with when i first saw it for $48.00 a yard, but didn't purchase until i found it for $7.30 a yard, as i needed about 6 yards of the stuff).

excuse the dazed expression.

the second picture - a random group of friends, so you can see the general shape and fit of it.

lots of boning in the bodice, as i have fairly large chesticles, and it laced up the back, meaning the only bra i could wear was one that taped to my sides (surprisingly supportive!)

sorry for the long-winded post! if anyone wants more pictures or info i'm happy to share Smiley
