Sr. Prom Dress

Added Feb 25, 2010

by Callie Harkness

Richmond Hill, G...






This is the dress I made for last year’s prom. It took me about a month to finish. It was kinda modeled after Bell’s yellow dress from Beauty and the Beast. Everyone said it was the best dress that year. I even put a pocket in the skirt so my date wouldn’t have to carry my lipstick.

Material Notes

I used a satin for the bodice and underskirt. The overskirt was made with an organza. The embroidery on the front I did by hand, but the lace on the sides and skirt was handmade in Madeira, Portugal.




Garment Type
Evening Wear
Organza, Satin

    This is beautiful! I can’t believe it only took you a month— not only to create and sew, but to embroider as well! A stunning work of art.
