Prom dress inspiration

Yup! I'm making my own prom dress. It's inspired by mauves, florals, pastels, Grecian goddesses, & ballerinas - all whipped into something very soft, feminine, and ultimately, very me (hopefully). I've never made a bodysuit before, and this one's going to be more structured and corset-like. Plus I want to play around with fabrique fleurs... so we'll see how it goes!

    Can't wait to see how it progresses. The rose dress on the first photo is impressive! I made my own prom dress also, it was exciting if a little bit stressful, hahaha.

    I can't see the images, it says that the bandwich exceeded. I guess the message is from But it's great that you designed your own prom dress. Happy prom season!
