so this year for homecoming, i decided to make my dress. WOW it was a lot more work than i thought it would be, i ended up finishing the dress the day of the dance! but i think it turned out great, it fit perfectly and everyone adored it! hot pink is my FAVORITE color, and i wear pink all the time so it was no surprise i wanted a pink dress!

it looks red...



this is the actual color (hot pink)


the fabric was the most BEAUTIFUL hot pink satin, it was amazing but frayed like crazy!! the ruffles at the bottom are made from satin ribbon, with a long stitch running through the middle to make ruffles, then sewn on the skirt. the belt is just a satin ribbon tied in a bow at the back.

i'll try to get pictures of the ruffles and the back if i can... but anyways this dress is probably the prettiest one i've ever had!

i used Simplicity pattern #4070, view E. the only modification is that i didn't make the belt that goes on it, instead i just used a satin ribbon and tied it at the back. and the ruffles aren't included in the pattern, but they're pretty easy to make by themselves. thanks for your comments! Smiley

That looks AMAZING! It looks like a dress you'd buy in the store (for a bunch of money).

Whoa, I love it! And, by the way, your shoes are adorable. Smiley Did you use a pattern for this? It feels so vintage and fits you soooo well. I'm just overly impressed, obviously.  Roll Eyes
