I made this cute little prom dress using pattern 02/2011 out of some quirky patterned lightweight polyester fabric.

I cut the skirt a little shorter and added a net underskirt for effect.

    OMG! That dress is so fab! Love how you have a few little clouds on the bodice. Nice job with the pattern placement and the crinoline underneath makes it even better. Very much enjoy the prom…I’m sure you’ll receive a gagillion complements :)
