I told my cousin I would make her prom dress , whatever style she wanted and she said she wanted something different. She said she wanted something different from the rest.

She sent me a picture

And she said she don’t want to show her cleavage like this girl because she is very modest #raisedright. She supplied the fabric and I took care of everything else especially lots of love.Β 


I started with drafting the pattern on the mannequin which I stuffed up to her size

I ironed it out and traced it on my brown paper which I use as patten paper for the bodice

I cut the fabric out using the drafted pattern. I ironed the interfacing on the front side of the pattern


After I stitched both the lining and the fabric of the bodice together.

I applied 3” wide horsehair braiding to a long rectangle fabric , say about 3 yards. I gathered the hard tulle, lining and fabric to her waistline size and stitched together.

After everything came together I applied the Trim (please click and watch the video if you want to learn how I applied the trim)

She was blown away when she saw the dress and Mehn did she look fabulous in that dress

Grace and Elegance
