here is the first dress I made (i only started recently) for my end of year ball. Im posting this as a slide show rather than an Instructable, as I was following a pattern and I didnt invent it! it is Newlook pattern 6401, which i think is beautiful, and has lots of variations as seen here: Pattern
It was quite simple to make and quite a nice shape- though i think its the fabric that makes this dress good. its kinda a japanese pattern with white/silver blossom and blue spikey flowers. to accent this I chose an ice blue colour for the contrast sash which ties round the open back and falls to about calf level. there is also a mini train which poofs when you walk which you cant really see in these pics! The front is very deep cut aswell. anyway here are a few photos of making it and me in it. let me know what you think!
