This is my 16 year old daughter, Miranda. I realized recently that I never posted this dress I made for her.
Miranda is a very creative and talented artist. She drew out the dress she wanted for prom. I found a pattern that was the closest to what she wanted and made a few alterations to the pattern.
Have I told you before how I loathe store bought patterns for clothes? I don't know what the deal is, but they NEVER fit the size that you actually are. Miranda is a size 3 and I had to cut this dress out at a 12 I think. WAY OFF!!!! They really need to update the pattern sizing to match the sizes in the stores.
I used this pattern above for the main dress. I then cut the neckline into a V, and created an uneven pleated dickie, to create the look Miranda wanted.
I used this pattern (above) for the sleeves and altered those as well. I made them wider to make them more modest.
Isn't she beautiful?
