This year, my friend had me make her dress from senior prom.  She picked out the pattern, fabric, and notions and I sewed it.  It's more of a skirt and top but we just called it a dress anyways.  It took FOREVER.  But she loved it so it was owrth it.  The top is boned and fully lined and the skirt has 8 panels that I pressed open and serged each side.  So i serged 18 seams on the skirt alone.  Which was a pain.  But the fabric frayed and I didn't want it to fall apart on her.  The straps/sleeves were my own design because she wanted her shoulders to be covered.  And there's a really fake diamond trim under the bust but you can't really see it in the pictures.  The trim was hand sewed and so was the skirt hem  Undecided.  The whole dress isn't really my style but it's what she wanted and I think it suits her style perfectly.













This was the pattern I used and I did the dress on the model on the left.

WOW

that is gorgeous! Clever girl. That is really relaly nice. And I dont normally like that kinda thing. I think if the finished product was a patterni woudln't look twice at it, but you made it look good. I think its because i've never seen a prom dress like that. Lots of dresses are the same and its retarded.

also, that blonde kid on the chair is hot.
