Cheap, low cost, affordable prom dresses that won't ruin the family budget can be found both online and offline. If you know how to sew and are crafty with a sewing machine, you can browse prom dress patterns and make your own prom dress , or contact an experienced seamstress local to you about making a prom dress that matches the dress pattern you like best.
Did you know that you can actually design your own prom dresses? Whether you are trying to find a strapless prom dress, prom dresses with sleeves, a Cinderella prom dress, a short prom dress or long prom dresses in your favorite color and style, you can design your own dress to your exact specifications. I have a lot of respect for young people who can design a prom dress that is stylish and modest all at the same time, plus the fact that the dress would be a one-of-a-kind prom dress that no one else has.
Oh! How I love this pattern! What a great wedding dress this would be! I love the full skirt with the peplum over skirt! This pattern would also be a wonderful Renaissance or goth costume.

Goin" to the Chapel and we're gonna get marrrried!! June will be here before you know it.....it's time to start sewing! But, before you get started, how will you pick out the best pattern for this very special day? I thought it would be both helpful and fun to look at some of the wonderful vintage wedding dress patterns that I have listed at my store and take a look at some great articles about both new and vintage wedding dress patterns!
I recently came across some wonderful articles on both new and vintage wedding dress patterns. There's allot to consider when choosing the right wedding dress pattern; from the color, to the style, to your own body figure, to finishing touches.
This first article deals with choosing the right dress style to help accentuate your "best" body attributes and help conceal the "trouble" areas! This is what the author suggests:
You will want your wedding dress to show off your figure to it's best advantage. Listed below are the 4 basic body types and the goals that you want to keep in mind for yourself based on your body type when choosing your pattern:
your hips are wider than your bust and shoulders. Your goal will be to minimize your lower body and create the illusion of additional upper body width.
Reverse Triangle -
your upper body is wider than your lower body. Your goal will be to emphasize lower body width.
your bust and hips are larger than your small waist. Your goal will be to create balance.
Since you want your wedding dress to be the most flattering of dresses, there are other things to think about as well, such as the color of the wedding dress.
