Vintage-inspired prom dress.
The black lace was constructed as a midriff 3/4 sleeve top (which i trimmed after the satin was attached);
The satin made as a basic bodice (not lined) with a gathered piece over the basic bodice on the front (in order to maintain the basic shape – although i gathered it hurriedly and it didn’t turn out so well!);
The skirt is a basic cirle skirt with 3 layers of gathered tulle over the top.
The zip is attached on the left side, from the top of the bodice to about 4 inches into the skirt.
I wore it in summer although it would be more appropriate for a fall/spring event.
Although a few elements turned out a bit rough, i was very happy with the outcome and received quite a few comments like: ‘did you get that from a vintage store?’ and ‘wow! you made that yourself?’
Black floral lace (polyester, no stretch – although in retrospect, stretch would have been better!)
Champagne non-stretch satin
Black tulle – fine (3 layers)
100% cotton black underskirt
Champagne coloured invisible zip
