I made this dress for the homecoming dance at my school. I designed the entire dress including the pattern from scratch, and really did a trial and error, pinning and taking things in as I went along. To choose the fabric I walked around my local fabric store and found colors I liked, basing my design on the fabric I found.
Hopefully when I find time in the near future I will put up my pattern and all the notes about how I fitted it.
I used a purple polyester blend and Black lace, but this dress could be made out of any fabric that drapes nicely.
