A peach prom dress based on Vogue 8150. This customer had seen some dresses she liked and wanted to use elements in each to create her own dress. We decided on a peachy pink crepe which flowed beautifully. I adapted V8150 to make the bodice finish at the waist instead of the hip and altered the straps to be straighter. I also added some boning to the bodice and changed the skirt. Oh – and I added covered buttons and a waist band. Now I think about it, there were quite a lot of changes!
