I drafted a basic bodice, flat pattern drafted the strapless under corset (boned), circle skirt and belt in Pattern Master V6. I used pink Casa satin from JoAnn fabrics. The over bodice and sleeves were made using a sparkle mesh from JoAnn. Her neckline and sleeve edges were finished with the Casa satin.
This next young lady is going to senior prom. She's a return customer. Here she is getting fitting in the muslin.

The happy couple on prom night!!!
Blair went to Fashion Design High School in Baltimore City.Here she is cutting out her muslin pattern.
Here I am draping her sleeve to get the look on the picture.
I didn't know how in the world I was gonna make the bottom of her dress because the sequin fabric was a just the same panel design over and over in yardage. It came to me one night....add godets. Her she is standing in the gown. I cut some slits and added godets caught from the panels. I used about 10 yds of fabric. It worked perfectly!!!!!1
The fabric is very, very sheer. I created a underdress made out of fleshtone swimsuit fabric (JoAnn Fabrics) and added 4" horse hair braid to the hemline of the underdress.I'm so proud of the finished gown.
I love making their prom dreams come true!!!!!
