New England, Nsw...
My first creation made from my own design, for my year 10 formal = )
I was pretty pleased with the Alice in Wonderland look about it, but that may have been my stockings and shoes too = )
It was a fairly simple princess seam that I developed from an old top that fit me well, with a gathered skirt and lace up back.
I am in year 12 now, so this photo is a tad old. I plan to try it on again and take more photos from better angles soon.
This dress came to me in a dream one night (yes, I often dream about sewing =P) and I woke up and had to scribble it down. I’m glad I did because it turned out that everyone loved it so much I was voted Prom Queen… O.O
Made from a soft but strong cotton, that I dyed blue.
And a layer of blue/green chiffon over the top, and black lace over the side panels of the bodice.
It laces up with eyelets and black ribbon at the back (with a modesty layer of black lace attached underneath at the last minute),
and has a black satin sash around the hip and a black tulle underskirt.
