For Fiona
commission from my rockin cousin, who just couldn't go to prom in a swooshy gown like everyone else.
Want to give a wee shout out to HerNameIsAlixx, It was seeing how awesome she looked and how happy she was in her steampunk prom dress that inspired me to offer to make Fiona's dress. And to Raven W. for making the skirt hitches I just had to try, even though mines are ribbon and no where near the skill level! The community of cut out and keep works people :)

  • Step 1

    Skirt is the same method as my other pick up skirt. circle skirt with gathers. I made the hitches with ribbon looped through the ring on a suspender clip and sewn secure.

  • Step 2

    bought the bodice top cheap of ebay, added a wee row of studs at the top. And bought the obi belt, though you could make yours easily

  • Step 3

    for the harness freehanded two front, kind of sock shapes, and a back, kind of bridge shape from the leatherette and made the studded shoulder epilettes separately and stitched on later.

Even if you buy your dress and embellish/modify it a bit! I think anything you wear has to feel like you, me... all my clothes are messy and uncoordinated with at least one little weird bit, that's me to a T! Happy

haha, I guess so ^^ I love upcycling...it's scary cutting up a t-shirt that you've only just bought though! Lol thanks, I've got my prom next year, so I'm collecting ideas ^^

I grew up on a fairly small island and always stood out like a sore thumb at events like that Happy That why Primark is so handy. If ever I'm stuck for something to wear, wee cheap t shirt can always be made fun Happy

Happy Happy I knew it!! £3 for a simple black t shirt, particularly when you might end up ruining it with bleach painting or something

Yep - their prices are starting to look more like Tesco's or Asda's (which isn't THAT expensive, but more than Primark's prices should be!) haha xD
