A Delightful Prom Dress

You may have seen this dress displayed in our front window. It was made by one of our Treadle sewing class students for her senior prom. We were absolutely blown away by the fantastic job Amanda did on this ambitious design!

Amanda used a heavily beaded and embroidered lace which she appliqued by hand to the foundation fabric.

The back has a great detail, too: A deep V laced closed with a huge pink silk bow!

Amanda used Vogue 8729, a vintage re-release, to make this dress.

And finally, to finish the outfit, a little clutch purse made in matching silk with a leftover scrap of the beaded lace. Adorable!

Thanks for sharing your fabulous dress with us, Amanda!


  1. This is amazing! Welcome to the magic of creating YOUR own clothes.

  2. This is a stunning dress - you have to see it in person! And to think she is a beginner!
