polka dot prom dress

Added Nov 7, 2008

This was my prom dress. I knew exactly what I wanted but just could not find the fabric I wanted, it had to be red with small white polka dots. Finally I found one but it was a very soft material, I needed something stiffer for the effect i wanted so I made a sort of inside out dress and used a stiffer fabric for the lining. I was most proud of the boning which I had never done before.

Material Notes

brocade, ribbon, red&white polkadot

    A great example of creative problem solving, mangos … with a beautiful result. I’m going to keep in mind that there is more than one way to arrive at a solution, when one can’t find exactly what one is looking for. Thanks for explaining your process!

    Your dress came out great! It’s sassy, flirty, and age appropriate. So many girls want to look older for prom. You did such a nice job; look forward to seeing more of your creations. :o)
