The more I think about it, the more I realize that I may need to use a pattern for the bust area of my dress.  I don't want it to look crappy.

I'll get back to you on this. Heh. I'm still trying to persuade my friends that going around town in prom dresses and suits for my seventeenth birthday is a GOOD THING.

but they just dont want to believe me.

I would LOVE to make my own prom dress, mine is the 2nd week in may, but I want to have a 20's-esque feel to it & i'm still trying to find the right pattern.

a civil world like this it always sells itself.

This is so fun!

I am a junior in college who went to FOUR high school proms. Rediculous.

If that weren't enough proms.....

So I am a Theatre major, and we've decided to have our own 'prom' this year. I need help! I think I want to make a flapper style dress... does anyone have any ideas for patterns?

If I can't pull off the flapper thing, I might just go for a 50's look.

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:

Yeah I know. The idea was to know which patterns are bad so I can avoid them. I'm not so much concerned with making one someone else has done. Oh well. I like your fabrics, though!


Smile like you mean it, and let yourself let go.

my mom is going to make my prom dress (she is an amazing seamstress..... though i may help a bit so i can do it on my own next year)

i am using simplicity #5238 style C... the fabric is black, and the overlay is going to be white laceish.... i am also too voluptuous for strapless, so we're changing that to have straps....

it's my boyfriend's sr year, and only my jr, so my dress is matching his tux.... its all white w/black "trim" .... kinda hard to explain but it's really cool looking Smiley
