Soooo I'm making a prom dress today. For me.
Allow me to explain.
The fabulous sewing blogger Oona [pictured above] from the blog Oonaballoona is going to be having her prom themed birthday party at Sew LA on Sunday at 9pm. It's called Promaballoona. And it's going to be the best fake prom you have ever seen. Spiked punch, a dance floor, awkward photo setup...everything you remember and tried to forget. It's open to anyone [do come if you're in LA!] and you can dress as a prom-goer from any era.
Here are the main ingredients of my yet-to-be-made dress. The first is the Sewaholic Cambie dress. View B is a little prom-ish in the right fabric, no?
And lastly. My favorite. Eight yards of the most wonderfully tacky aqua metallic tulle from Joann's. YES.
The pictures don't truly capture the glory of this tulle. It is slightly iridescent, and makes me think of a toddler's mermaid costume. In the best way possible.
My real life prom dress was a knee length strapless pink shiny dress that had pink flowers stuck on it. What was yours?
