Description

A friend of a friend asked me to make her prom dress for her, and this is how it turned out!

She made some different style choices than I would have, but you have to work with what the client wants!!
She really wanted the sweetheart neckline on a corset-style bodice. I wanted a wrapped/ruched look in the top to cut down on the glare from the bright orange and blend better into the ruffles in the skirt.
The whole idea of having the sloping hemline also was so she could wear her favorite cowboy boots and show them off. When she found out that they wouldn’t be allowed to take their shoes off at the dance though, she opted for some lighter heels which were cute, but changed the whole look.

She also bought the flat-backed rhinestones, so I couldn’t sew them on. I ended up using a hot glue gun!

Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. We got lots of stares and comments on how great she looked. The best part is that she loved it and had a great night at the dance!

    I have looked for this dress all over after seeing it shared to a friends facebook wall, I’m so glad I’ve finally found someone who actually knows something about it!! I’ll be attending my senior prom this year and I absolutely LOVE this dress. I`ve always wanted something like this. Would you be interested in making another? I`m willing to pay anything!

      To have this dress for Prom 2014 would start at $500 and go up depending on shipping, design elements, and amount of custom tailoring. Reply here or on my BurdaStyle wall if you are seriously interested. Thank you for loving my creation!!

    Hello, I was just curious as to if you could make this dress again? My prom is April 26th and this dress is absolutely perfect for me. I’ve been looking for so long for the perfect camo and orange dress and was just about to give up until I saw this one. It would make me so so sooooo happy if I could get this dress!!

    Oh my gosh, thank you for all of the compliments, girls! I have to apologize for not responding in a more timely manner… I just had a baby so the schedule fills up pretty quickly these days and doesn’t leave much time for sewing or “internetting.” There is no way, unfortunately, that I could make another dress like this for prom season 2013.

    I’ve seen the comments from last year and I was wondering if she sold it or if she’s interested in selling it this year or if mabye you have time this year to make another one? I’ve looked at several camo prom dresses and this one is hands down my favorite! And I’ve been wanting a high low dress with camo, orange, and I love the jewels and this one is my favorite and I’m gonna wear boots so this dress you can see them !(:

      I think the materials cost about $150, but I overestimated the amount of each satin I would need. It took me about 3 months, but I work and go to school also… If you had dedicated sewing time, I’m sure you could finish it way faster

      I made my own pattern. The top is based on the “my purple corset” pattern here on Burdastyle, but basically with triangles added to the top to make the princess neckline.

    This dress is absolutly BEAUTIFUL! I am looking for a camo dress for prom this year and am having no luck in finding a good one. Do you know if she would be willing to sell it? If not, would you be willing to make another and for how much if so?

      Unfortunately I don’t have time to make another one. Like I said to Molly, the dress is somewhere around a US size 16, so if you are interested in buying it from her, I will ask her for you.

      I don’t think she’s interested in selling… She’s about a US size 16 (it’s pinned pretty hardcore in that pic to keep it on the dress form). If you are interested, I will ask her.

    Lovely details on the bustier. I also love a colour of the under skirt. You did an awesome job.

    You did a really good job. It’s hard to make something that doesn’t fit with your idea of how it should look. The dress is very striking and your workmanship is beautiful so I’d say overall it is definitely a success!
