Whew! My dd prom dress is finally done! She had seen this dress at Dillards and wanted me to make a modest version of it. I ended up using 4 different patterns modifying each of them and then making up some of my own patterns. It was a trial and error dress and a learning experience. But it turned out beautiful and my dd loves it!
Now onto the next project or two!

I like your dress better than the Dillards dress. Yours looks quite a bit more expensive though.

I will try again to put the full picture in. I was having problems before.
The boughten dress was over $200. My dress cost for fabric was around $60 plus all my time and frustration. But that doesn't count when it is for a loving daughter, does it!http://s573.photobucket.com/albums/ss180/whitneyphotos/?action=view¤t=IMG_1992_edited-1-1.jpg

For some reason I can't get it to link.

Much nicer than the Dillard's dress. And much more age-appropriate for a prom. You did a terrific job!
