Prom and Homecoming

This homecoming dress was made for a young lady who found the perfect dress at the store, but in the wrong color! I recreated the dress in the color of her choice!

This young lady brought me the cover of a magazine, which showed Taylor Swift modeling a lovely red, strapless dress. On the inside of the bodice is a close-fitting corset, which allows the dress to drape beautifully.

Lace bodice with beaded straps and belt, gathered chiffon overlay skirt.
