by maryy

Stockholm, Sweden






Here’s a prom dress made to a friend of mine. This after school project turned out to be pretty effortful but I’m so happy I overcame all the obstacles and the dress got finished in time. Kaisa was pleased with the result and so was I.

Material Notes

cotton elastan (same fabric as used in my purple evening gown), chiffon, invisible zipper, satin ribbon, strap




Garment Type
Chiffon, Cotton

    When you doing a piece for your friend its always a little nerve racking, at least from my experience.Cause when you make a mistake for yourself its not a problem, but for a friend……….ulallaala. So well done for you! It looks beautiful!

    Waow scrumptious! The struggles you had with the garment are well tucked under the pleats. Seamless!

    yes, yes, yes, yes! What a gorgeous dress and so perfect for her silhouette. The detail at the bottom is so delicate. What was the most challenging part for you? Think about wedding dress making. Really.

    This is beautiful! The colour combination is wonderful. It’s so elegant. I would love to learn how to do that pleating technique (if that’s the right term?!) I bet she was the best dressed at the prom!
