First prom of 2014

Well this young lady is going to her jr. Prom!  She was a very pleasant young lady and a joy to work with!  She designed her gown.  I think it turned out great.  She and her mom were very pleased.

I drafted the pattern in Wildginger PMB.  The gown is a black stretch sequin from A Fabric Place over a heavy stretch satin purchased from Metro textiles in NY.

It has an invisible in the side seam.  The sleeve is underlined in a flesh tone silk organza with a black poly organza sleeve head.  I hand sewed a 3" black sequined stretch trim to the cuff and hem of the dress.  The black sparkle organza bow/train is detachable and can be used as a shawl/coverup!







I made the bow tie out of satin (gross grain adjustable neck band), and hand sewed the studs (purchased from M&J Trims).

The gold sequined and stud covered epaulet is all hand made.  I cut a piece of craft pellon heavy weight in the desired shape and covered it with satin fabric.  I then glued a sequin trim to the top and sequined trim to the edges.  The studs I sewed on were purchased from M&J trim in NY.
