I spent two years on this baby. On and off of crocheting pop tabs together in a chainmaille pattern (6,075 of them). The local newspaper took pictures of me and my dress.

I even made my friend/date a matching tie Cheesy


I also got to hear a nice little clink with every step <3



My prom was actually last year, but i never got around to posting it. oops.

This is awesome!
Love the simple "straps", they're perfectly elegant yet don't distract from the epic "fabric".

Is the dress lined? I can't imagine that those tabs would make for a very comfy gown!

I wore a slip underneath because of all the gaps between the tabs. It's actually not too bad comfort wise, unless you're sitting.
