Prom dress.

Hello there peeps!

How is everyone?!?

I’m playing catch up as ever! I have several posts in the pipeline, and am back on the wordpress app to publish for now!

So what have I been sewing in my absence?!? Well this little number was for a girls prom, it’s a variation on Vogue V8849…

I added a lace overlay on the bodice, added thick pleated lace straps…

Little Miss wanted a little ribbon added to the waist to break up the dress a bit… The skirt was meant to be above the knee but it was made in a column style. Aka right down the the floor with a vent at the back that was just above the back of the knee.

I pleased with the outcome, although I did not have enough fabric to do the facing on the bias to had to cut and hem it!!

In the end it all worked out great! And fitted like a dream… After a few tacks were added to the facing!

I was in such a rush to get it out I never got a photo of little miss wearing it… Although, that is true to form around here!

So have you been sewing any special occasion dresses if late?!? Do share.
