Prom Dress for burda style talent 2015 (burda germany)

Added Apr 18, 2015

by Hannah Ortmann






I did this project for my school prom last year. I saw a dress in a burda magazin and wanted to do something similar to that. So the silhouette is similar but I changed several things. I added the open back and thought of some draping for the top part. And I decided to ruffle the skirt at the top.

Material Notes

I used chiffon as material, I found it very cheap at a market and started with ten meters. I still have a lot left for a next projekt! I used lining for the top part only. I needed the linings two times, one to sew the draping on and one as actual lining. I used two layers of chiffon for the skirt, that way its not see-trough anymore and it looks more beautiful than with a lining fabric. I used an invisible zipper in the side of the dress, but I would advise against it because its hard to close due to the curve the body makes at the waist.

    This is absolutely amazing, you did such a great job! Draping looks so delicate, it must be a lot of work. But it’s totally worth it :)
