I DID IT!!

May 4, 2014

Well, I actually did it. After starting at the end of February, I finally finished my prom dress. This was a big endeavor for me as I started sewing about a year ago.

DETAILS!:

I made a tealength strapless sweethert neckline 50s-esque gown. It is made with crepe-back satin and layered tulle and lace. I designed this myself with the help of my directed study advisor. I also utilized tutorials on how to make a basic bodice sloper and how to make a sweetheart neckline bodice.

Here are pictures!

I also made my own petticoat using this tutorial suggested by Tina C. The picture of my hair is how I’m going to do it for prom! I’m wearing these really cute velvety green t strap heels.

I also plan on making a bowtie for my prom date with the excess crepe back satin I have.
