Junior Prom

Added Apr 17, 2010

New York, New Yo...






This is the dress I made for my Junior Prom back in ‘07. I don’t know why I never put it up before! I did the bodice twice, this is the final version (which is much better than the original design). The skirt is done in the bodice fabric with an organza overlay- I used the extra organza to make the shawl.

I didn’t use a pattern for the bodice (either time), just measured where I wanted everything to go. Picked out a pattern (probably Simplicity, I don’t remember which one) for the skirt. Seems like an odd choice, but I wanted to be able to say I designed it myself (I didn’t feel so territorial about the skirt).

By now this looks dated to me, and I can think of a million things I wish I had done better, but I worked my butt off on it and I was really proud of what I did. :)

    You should be proud of making that all by yourself!! It’s an accomplishment. It’s very pretty, but we always go back wishing we’d changed things. It’s lovely :D
