May 19th 2012- I had the best time at high school prom. What do girls look forward to the most for prom? THE DRESS! My mind was buzzing with all the dress ideas. One night, my family was watching Dancing With the Stars when I saw the dress I wanted to make. This season, Maria Menounos and Derek danced a foxtrot during Motown week. Maria wore a sparkly, sequin, long, flowy dress with white gloves. As she was spinning around, (watch the dance here) I fell in love! I jumped online and found a pattern on Etsy. It's Butterick 3768: strapless, long, corset back. PERFECT! I wore a light blue shirt underneath with my vintage elbow length gloves and a curly updo. In the end, I got exactly want I pictured along with SO many wonderful complements! I do LOVE this dress.
This was AFTER prom when I wore it the next day to church.
Waiting for my date.....
His tux. Flowers. My gloves.
