Vintage/Modernized Senior Prom Dress

Added Jun 30, 2013

My daughter wanted a vintage look with a contemporary vibe to it. So I used Vintage Vogue 1172 altered to a slightly more modern silhouette. The back was dropped, and the shoulders narrowed. The length was shortened.

Material Notes

Gold dupioni silk, vintage Rhinestone and beaded trim, belting and vintage self covered belt buckle.

    Thanks everyone, it was a fun project. As for the belt making, there are lots of great tutorials out there if you google it. I actually bought the hardware at a garage sale a few years ago. It was one of those lucky finds.

    The matching belt is gorgeous. Did you use a belting kit? I love the different buckle you used and would appreciate any pointers on making something similar.
