Tera's Prom Dress

Added Feb 12, 2010

by Kathryn Smith

Murrieta, Califo...






I made this prom dress for my daughter Tera’s Senior Prom. I did not have a pattern, but made what I saw in my head. The back of the dress was cut very low and was highlighted by a ribbon bustle that was beaded with crystals.

Material Notes

I used a Crepe backed Charmuese.

    I would love to get inside your head if that’s just one of the things that you can create with no pattern. What a great end result… I am a little envious although I hope I can do the same for my daughter one day… maybe with a pattern though. xo Steph

    Wow…what an exceptional job. I hope you are giving yourself a pat on the back for this project. My goal is to get to this stage of sewing. I do not have any kids yet but when I do I hope I can create garments that are as wonderful and well executed as yous. What a talent. Way to go!
