Description

This is a prom dress that I made for one of my best friends in the whole world. She’s a fun, interesting person, and needed a dress that matched her personality. We designed it together, and I drafted a pattern. I ran into plenty of problems along the way, but I had so much fun making it! This was also my first time hand beading, and I’m sure it looks a bit of a mess on the inside, but it turned out well. She was thrilled with the end result, and looked lovely in it!
