I made this dress with my mom for my senior homecoming nearly two years ago. When I tried on the lining it fit, but once we got the zipper in and used up the seam allowances, I couldn’t fit my chest in the dress! So we improvised and made little straps out of tulle to go up the back of the dress. I actually think it’s nicer that way. Unfortunately the pictures aren’t the greatest, but the dress was wonderful! I can’t wear it anymore, though, because we sewed the back straps on right before the dance and I had to be cut out of it later. Maybe I’ll fix it up sometime.
