I thought since we were looking at vintage wedding dress patterns that it would be fun to look at the wonderful styles of patterns that you could use to sew your own prom dress!
Allot of Bridesmaid Dress Patterns can also be used for Prom Dress Patterns with little or no change in style or fit! I love this vintage pattern from 1947. The cute peplum skirt really adds allot of style to this dress! The length can be short or long, whichever you prefer. That's the great thing about designing your own prom dress, besides you will have the only dress like it!
This pattern, as well as other cute formal dress patterns, can be found at my store - sassybydesign!
There are so many different options to prom dresses today. I found a great article that gives some wonderful advice on how to design your very own prom dress! The author writes:
Prom Dress Designs
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.
