That is stunning!  And congratulations!

Could you explain how you did the bias cut skirt, please?

This is just stunning.  I have been crafting for a long time, but could never have done this at your age.  I am in awe.

That is LOVELY. Wow. I absolutely love it. You did a GREAT job on it. I know for my graduation I had to wear 'white or black' and I could NOT find a dress that fit me. I ended up having to wear a skirt and top (so I wore black AND white). If only I had known how to sew Senior year ... Ah well. Beautiful work!

I think I'm in love with this dress.
What kind of material did you use?

thank you so for the new comments! 

elensule - one of my friends bought a long skirt and a lace top and im so excited to see her ensemble Smiley im sure everyone looked so sophisticated in their black and white!

aislynne - what i did for the skirt was lay out about two layers of two yards of fabric, both unfoled to make them as wide as possible.  then, using a little less than half of my waist measurement (the fabric stretched a lot so i didnt want it to be too big) i measured out the length i wanted from that waist measurement until i had a sort of truncated triangle, wider on the bottom.  (the first time i made the dress - i made a test version in purple - the top of the skirt was skin tight!  so i made sure to flare it out more from the waist measurement).  because "bias" means "on the diagonal", it wasted a bit of fabric on either side.  but once the "triangles" were cut, i seamed them up the sides and voila!    i hope that made sense, i explained it more eloquently in a personal message before and now it sounds all confusing Smiley

chibii - youre right, it is a bit long.  but i have a pair of heels to wear with it, and i wanted to make sure it just *barely* grazed the floor when i walked.  the heels are about 2.5 inches so its just enough to keep me from tripping Smiley

maryfrana - ive been sewing for a couple years after a peak of interest in fashion design occurred over a summer.  i will be majoring in fashion design in the fall Cheesy
