Draped Prom Gown

Added Jun 19, 2014

Massachusetts, U...






I created this dress to wear at my 2014 Junior Prom and was thrilled with the results! The bodice is entirely hand sewn and draped, and the sleeves and belt are hand beaded. It felt unreal to get compliments on the dress throughout the night, and I learned a ridiculous amount from this project.

Material Notes

satin lined, chiffon polyester, clear and pearl beads




Garment Type
Romantic, Classic, Evening Wear
Chiffon, Polyester, Satin
