White Ruffled Dream- Prom 2011

Now this dress was a take on another dress.  I think I started out executing it pretty well.  I had never done this type of work with all the ruching and styling of the gathers and ruffles.  The base dress of course is your basic bustier foundation, simple enough.  I love starting with a basic foundation, it's like working with building blocks after the fit is taken care of.
 Notice how the dress hangs on the dressform...the young lady decided to pull the train back to "show" more thigh..thus taking away from the beautiful flow of the hem.
Ruffled dream in the making...
The prom train

After cutting the train...this is the shape after unfolding the fabric.  It still had to be interlined with organza, lined, turned and topstitched before gathering it to t he hem of the dress.
