Hi there! I posted on the help section a while back (like two years ago while back eeek!) about help for my prom dress....
I have finally found pictures of the bottom which I needed help with! HORRAHHH!
So here we go!

I started off with a 35 dress from TK Maxx. This picture is of the dress partially constructed, the boob part were attatched to the other side, with a strap going from the center of them upto the neck like an inverted halterneck, and had some sort of jewelled thing connecting the straps together just in the center of the chest. I took the jewelled thing off and swapped the boob sections round to create a halterneck that went from the far side of the chest.




I then posted to ask for some help on what to do with the bottom section of the dress.
This is what I decided on doing.... ruffling up the bottom and making it shorter!
I also redid the back of the dress but i don't have any photo's of it. I made it low backed, and used matching ribbon to make it lace up sort of like a corset. and here is the final dress!



Complete with action pictures!





My whole outfit came out real cheap too hehe.
the bag was 3 in a sale and the shoes where also only 5 in New Look.
so the whole thing came to 43! which is nothing compared to everyone else...
my friend charlotte in the purple payed 90 for her dress alone! But it is amazingly beautiful!

Thanks for reading! C&C very welcome!

wow!!!
you look amazing in your reconstructed dress.
it's quite beautiful & fits great.
it is a bit laughable how much better your dress looks than all of the ones in the background that were likely hundreds of dollars  Grin
i wish i was that creative in high school.

The dress is an amazing colour, and you looked so gorgeous in it!
The shoes and bag were also cute. Do you live in England? (Pretty dumb question..)

Turns out I gotta make my own prom dress too! Hope it comes out as lovely as yours!
