It’s Prom Season!
Prom season is upon us, and while I don’t make as many prom dresses as I alter, I have made my fair share.
I thought I would take some time to show off some of my favorite’s of those I have made!
This Black ruffled chiffon dress was designed by the client. It had a low fitted back, and a sequined sash that sat at the hip. The ruffled skirt had a thigh high slit.
This Blue satin asymetrical dress was designed after a dress from one of the Mission Impossible movies. It was another experiment in draping, and really fun to make!
And yet another draped experiment! This young lady came to me about 10 days before prom with fabric and a drawing in hand. I still don’t know how I did it so quickly and so well.
This last dress was one I made a couple years ago. My client came to me with a design and idea – she wanted a “peacock” dress, with real peacock feathers! After pricing those feathers out for her, she decided on this custom made fabric instead. Peacock feathers are not cheap! The custom made fabric wasn’t inexpensive either, but it was considerably cheaper than the real feathers.
I am currently working on a prom dress for this year. As soon as I get it completed, I will post photos. Just as a tease – it’s very blingy!!
