Last prom gown of the year!

I call this gown "buttercup"  This is the inspiration.










Aajah's getting pretty!!!!

This is the foundation.  I constructed it with the poly dupioni and muslin.  I added gross grain ribbon to the edge and attached the hook and eyes.  I sometimes add a zipper instead, I think I like it with a zipper better.  This really keeps a strapless gown secure.

My label is sewn to the foundation.
I modified Butterick 4731. The gown was made with Casa Satin from Joanns...to prevent wrinkles and to give it more body I lined the gown with a poly dupioni.  The lower skirt is Casa with a Chiffon overlay.  It's lined with a regular cling free poly lining.  I attached gathered petticoat netting to the lower outside edge of the lining to give it a little lift.

This is the final gown of the prom season.   Now for some me time sewing, a bridesmaid gown, and a wedding gown for August.  Thanks for stopping by!
