So I was creeping around I just realized I have yet to post my prom dress from last year!

Made completely myself, no pattern or anything. It was my senior project as well so I had to do extinsive research, keep track of expenses and how I made it rather than just dive in like I do any other time.

The bodice is a full corset made from black twill with ribbon edging. The skirt is made from some silky material I dont remember exactly what it was and I deleted my presentation. The skirt it three layers, each gathered so the next layer is larger (the bottom layer ungathered was long enough to go from the top of our stair case the bottom with fabric to spare Shocked)

My Sister and I

Me and My Idiot Date {We broke up later that night}

Thanks for looking!
