Finished Breakfast at Tiffany's Dress for Prom

Hi All!  I'm back from the Reading, Pa airshow, what an awesome event!! I have so much to share but I want to get caught up with a few posts first. But before I forget, the winner of my surprise giveaway is ....

Brigid of the blog Boyer Family Singers! Congratulations! I will be contacting you soon :)

I have projects to share as promised. :) Today I have some photos of the Breakfast at Tiffany's dress I finished back in May for my friend Abby. You may recall the first post where we played with the pattern to get just the right look.

I first couple photos are ones I took with my cell phone so they are not all that great. (I have a new camera now so going forward photos will be much better!) The photos of Abby wearing the finished dress at prom were taken by someone else.

The final mock-up of the bodice back.
This photo, although very washed out, shows the finished front with some options for jewelry.

The finished back.
There were a few minor adjustments to make last minute, such as taking the bodice in a little more, but I think in the end it fit pretty well. Using my mom's sewing machine I was able to serge all the seams making the inside of the dress much neater. The fabric, although nice to work with over all, did fray quiet a bit.

Abby looks fantastic, don't you think?

 I love how the back of the dress turned out. :)

  4. This is truly one of the loveliest and most sophisticated prom dresses I have ever seen. Excellent work on it, dear gal, and many kudos to Abby for picking such a classy, timeless piece for her big night. She could turn right around, if the opportunity arose, and wear this to a White House dinner if she was so inclined. It's elegant, beautiful, and immensely becoming, too.

    *PS* Thank you very much for your wonderfully nice blog comment today. I smiled ear-to-ear when you described the secret fifth season - we often have that here in Canada, too. :)
