Description

This is the prom dress I wore at the big university spring prom in 2008. I made it from yellow thai silk and yellow silk organza. I wanted the dress to be light and floating, but still shaping. I think it turned out quite well.

I started to use the thai silk to sew an underdress with a close fit to support the bust and shape the body. I then draped the organza ontop of the silkdress. This was a bit of a struggle and took a lot of time since I dont have a doll, but had to drape it onto my own body whilst wearing the dress. I got quite a lot of pinpricks from this method, but the result made it all worth it!

    Thanks everyone! I must admit though, I haven’t worked with organza since I made this dress, not my favourite material that’s for sure!

    WOW! WOW and WOW! You draped this dress on you body? Amazing! Draping on a form is hard enough, but you did it while wearing the base dress. And on top of that you used organza! You have skills for sure! Standing ovation to you!!! This dress is stunning and beautifully constructed!!! Very Haute Couture!!!

    Very nice! I give you credit for working with the yellow organza – I myself do not have the patience for sheers.
