So, I just wanted to post this other project I made last spring because I loved it.  It was my prom dress, and I didn't want to buy one because the generic ones didn't really appeal to me.  I mean, I love them and all, but I wanted something different, you know?  so...ta-da! dress:

Little update:  the fabric is silk (a champagne color).  The dress is fully lined with a boned upper bodice with hooks and eyes inside.  Outside, there is a zipper that curves around my body, which I think is very interesting.  It is a Vogue pattern (V2929)...but I altered it a little.  You see, it called for a contrasting color for a *lack of better word* patchwork-y look of dress.  The pattern instructions were also very confusing, so if anyone is attempting it and has questions, I'd be more than happy to help Smiley

~sorry...I have wide birthing hips...tis a curse..

NOTE:  The top of the dress looks better than that...I just had to throw it on for that picture quickly so I could develop some pictures of it for a little project...also, it can sometimes get a little funky because it is lined with an inner bodice  Smiley

Hope you like it!   Roll Eyes

That is really beautiful, and so much classier than store bought prom dresses.  Great job!

That is gorgeous! Very classy indeed. And by the way, you should love your hips! They are an important part of what makes the dress look so "Hollywood Glamour", just like the ever beautiful Marilyn Monroe.  Wink

Beautiful dress, lovely hips.  The whole thing would have looked kind of silly if you were any less curvacious; that's what old school Hollywood is all about!  Those women had Shape, with an emphasis on the capital "ess".  Sexy curves will be your best friends, especially when you're fishing for some crasy good sales and you need to shepherd The Skinny Ones away from your sweet deals.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

That's gorgeous!  YOu have a beautiful figure, don't apologize!  The dress is perfect for you.

Can you tell us more- is it boned, what's the material, did you use a pattern?

That is fantastic!  I love the zipper, and the shape, and don't apologize!  You look beautiful!
