I finished my dress in time and wore it to my graduation:


I'm happy with how it turned out Smiley

I made my own prom dress and hopefully I will get the pics back soon so I can post them!!!  So for now I'll just describe it...  It was full length, hunter green satin, halter top, low back with crystal straps holding the sides together forming an X and also a gathered back so that it was bunched up and hung pretty.  I finished it literally SECONDS before my date came to pick me up, and thats after I called him and asked him to be a half hour late... hahaha.  All in all it turned out really well and I got tons of compliments despite the fact that almost all my finishing touches were very crude and b/c my dress was so tight fitting i had to sew the crystal straps on WHILE i was wearing it (VERY difficult sewing behind your back let me tell you, plus i had to break the straps at the end of the night to get my dress off, I could have simply cut the thread holding them on, but that would have been a big hassle trying not to cut my dress as well.) ANYWAYS, so since i was in such a hurry to get those darn straps sewed on, i sewed them on too high and ended up having use a little duct tape to keep my dress from puckering in a few spots.  This dress was truly the act of a Craftster member, hah.

I made my prom dress, before I found this page. I'm amazed it turned out as good as it did. I'm fairly new to sewing, But this baby got me a costuming job at Detroit Opera House this fall!!!

It is slightly inspired by the red temptress dress from Moulin Rouge.

These were actually taken after prom. Thats why my hair is not pretty looking. And I had just woken up from a nap. It was rainy on prom night so we only got a couple quick pics.

Someone already said it, but the first word that came to my mind was definately gorgeous. Very well done. That's a great color for so classy of a dress.

here's my prom dress (prom was last night!):

i picked out the pattern and fabric, my mom did all the sewing, which is probably for the best, since other-wise it'd still not be done.  i intended to help, i really did, but i think i would have just gotten in the way... Undecided
(excuse the expression on my face, i was getting annoyed at having to tell my dad how to work my camera.   Tongue)

so you all may think i'm crazy, but my senior prom is not for another year. i'm looking around for designs already cause i really want to make my own, and have it turn out nice. i have a question- i've sewn everything by hand and without a pattern, mostly recons and it's been pretty good. Do you think I'd definitely need to learn how to use my sewing machine if i want to make a prom dress, or would i possibly be able to sew this by hand?...
THe style i reaaaaaaaaalllllllly want to make is the green ribbon dress by sakijane- I'm in love  Smiley

thanks !
