More Prom Gowns

Hello friends,

Well one more left the stable...here's Shakia rocking her prom gown!  This gown is interlined with an interfaced lining weight fabric.  It has rigiline boning and I put piping around the top of the bodice.  I used an invisible zipper. This was the easiest sequin fabric I have every sewn.  No needles breaking and I didn't have sequins all over the place when I finished.  The sequins were sewn onto a stretchy netting.  Each biased cut layer on the skirt has a wolly nylon rolled edged hem over 20 lb fishing line.  The bottom skirt is soooo dreamy!




Here's the black and red sequined dress.  I drafted the pattern using Celebrations software from Wildginger.  It on the other hand was horrible to sew with, I know I've broken at least 5 needles and there were sequins all other the place.  There's no zipper in it at this point. I'm working on the sleeves and the bow/train tomorrow.  I underlined the sequin fabric with a poly satin (med) weight.  Because the dress is so heavy, I'm going to encase all seams with seam binding rather then add a lining.

You did a great job on all three dresses! Especially with what looks like some very difficult fabrics.
