This isn't a vintage pattern but I couldn't resist adding it in ! I love the fitted bodice and the super full skirt! I think this dress would make any girl look like a princess! This "ball gown" type of pattern works well with any figure and even helps conceal problem hip and leg areas.
A prom dress is both an important decision and can be a very costly one as well. I recently came across an article that listed some great reasons to sew your own dress! One, very big reason, is the cost. The article states that an average prom dress can cost up to $ 500.00! The article then states that the cost of sewing your own dress normally runs about $ 50.00! Well, we know that this amount can vary depending on the type of material and trims that you may use but the savings will still be worth it in the end! Just think....more money to spend on all the finishing touches, nails, jewelry and don't forget....awesome shoes!
