Here are the promised pictures of the finished bandage bodice dress.
Here’s a close up of the layered elastic forming the bodice.
And another one almost showing the full length skirt. It did hang rather nicely despite the unusual combination of heavy polyester jersey lining and thin polyester crepe fashion fabric.
I cannot tell you how glad I am this unusual request (experiment) turned out so well. I must say, it suited the client to a ‘T’. She was pleased, and I’m sure will get a lot of wear from it once I hem it to be worn with flats.
Stay tuned for the next graduation commission in yellows and pinks.

Amazing MacGyver job! Well done! 🙂
Thank you! I think MacGyver would have come up with a solution much quicker than I did….. I always did have a crush on him…
Oh that is a very elegant prom dress!
Yes! I was surprised, I confess, that it resulted in such a lovely wearable dress. Goes to show you, never say never!
Oh goodness, what a perfect fit! This very unexpected prom dress is wonderful!
It’s really quite pretty on!
wow, that dress turned out really well! Great job!
Reading about all that polyester and elastic made me come out in a hot flush, but I suppose those young things don’t mind the poly sweatiness as much 😉
It looks great. Sometimes we really need to be pushed into things to discover just what we can do. Well done.
You did a great job on this! What a fun and sassy prom dress!
Wow, so well done on a difficult brief. I am impressed.
It really looks quite nice. Good thing you convinced her of the need for a zipper. That dress would have never been able to have gotten into without some type of closure. Funny how people who don’t see tell you how to do things. Great job!
Just perfect for her, nice job!
