Diary of a Dress: Prom 2013 {three}


It's nearly done! I'm quite happy with the way it's looking thus far. Like I mentioned in the last diary post, it has a Grecian feel to it, so I guess I know what song I'm going to be requesting at the Prom.


Okay, well, maybe not. But hey. You know that's what I'll be thinking.



 I've already tried it on and strutted around my room trying to look like, um, well, a Disney Princess. Cuz it's worth it.



Here's my 'prom haul' thus far- some Revlon polish in "Gold Coin" and jewelry from the best store on the planet, Charming Charlie's. Cannae wait to try it all on.

...next up on the Diary, I'm going to be IN the dress. Huzzah for progress.

Diary Of A Dress: Prom 2013 {two}

  So far I've got the bodice done... that's about it. I'm not really sure how this dress is going to turn out, but I think it's going to have a Grecian feel to it.

 

 The midrift section of the dress is going to be a mustard yellow, which will hopefully set the grey off in a delightful way.


  Tomorrow I'm going jewellry/makeup shopping for the event... Charming Charlies, for the win!

Next stop- midrift +  skirt!

Customer Photos: 1780's Prom Gown!


   Lovely Monica has shared pictures of her wearing the prom dress I made for her! I think she looks just as ducky as I knew she'd be (and some)!



If you'd like to commission me to create a similar gown for in your size and colors, I'd be more than happy to discuss your dream dress!

Diary of a Dress: Prom 2013 {one}


  Here's the sneak peek for my prom dress for 2013! The dance is on May 31st, so I'm kinda on a deadline to get this done. However, when has that ever stopped me?

*cough*

  Well, we won't say anything about the enormous amout of stress behind that last sentence...
anyway, here is the main inspiration for this dress:



Allons-y, I'm off to start off this puppy!
