I made my dress for homecoming this year (with the much appreciated help from my mum), and let me just say...before you buy a pattern, make sure its going to fit your body type.  I had bought the pattern, sewed the lining, everything was going as planned...and then when the final pieces were going together, and I tried it on, I realized because of my stupid boobs, the halter top fit weird and was too open...eventually we found a way to tack it down 30 minutes before I had to leave...but still...just a thought...

here it is though, in case you were wondering


That's my friend Eric with me.

even with the last minute troubles you had, it still looks gorgeous!

choosing styles to flatter your body type can be a frustrating thing- especially when you have your heart set on something... I can't wear styles like what you chose - cos I have no boobies... I'd love to be able to wear halter tops and that sort of cut, but it just looks so wrong on me!
I also cannot pull of real long shirts... just makes me looks even shorter than I am... (BLAH!)

beautiful work, and the color choice suits you:)

hee hee i can relate with you! i decided NOT to make my prom dress for that very reason - what if it doesn't fit my chest and it's all made and whatnot!? nice save, my friend.

i too, feel your pain.

My mom and I made many of my homecoming dresses waaay back in high school. And the first step in figuring out what i wanted was either trying something on and finding a similiar pattern, or finding a pattern I loved and finding something similiar to try on....at least then you have a general idea of what youre getting into  Undecided
(this is how i avoided the halter dress catastophe!)

seriously though, you look beautiful!
