This was my prom dress. I knew exactly what I wanted but just could not find the fabric I wanted, it had to be red with small white polka dots. Finally I found one but it was a very soft material, I needed something stiffer for the effect i wanted so I made a sort of inside out dress and used a stiffer fabric for the lining. I was most proud of the boning which I had never done before.
brocade, ribbon, red&white polkadot
