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.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
