Front view, modeled so nicely by my vintage Acme fully adjustable “living” dress form. 🙂
Another bodice pic. I tried to get those sparkly star effect thingys happening with the light prisming through the crystals, but obviously my photography skills aren’t up to snuff, and I wasn’t about to Photoshop them in.
So there we have it. Six yards of silk chiffon + silk peau de soie bodice embroidered with freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, silk flowers, japanese seed beads + petticoats and a variety of supporting layers = one completed prom dress. I had a lot of fun!!!

What a fun dress! I’d love to undertake a gown like this but at the moment don’t know any prom-going teenagers. The silk panel print is amazing, and I can “see” how sparkly the crystals are.
I bet E was the belle of the ball! What a lucky girl to have you as a friend 🙂 🙂
wow, it is absolutely gorgeous and so different than any other prom dresses I have seen.

Oh oh oh oh oh…. You clever wonderful mum. It was worth every single sneak peak post and then some. Please can we see it on your gorgeous girl too? Please pretty please?
Well, it was for a friend’s daughter, and she didn’t want to model it when I delivered it, hence my dress form as model!

Fabric post: June 5; Finale post: June 15. Just. Amazing. Your niece should now address you as Saint TiaDia. Or at least, Your Majesty.
