80's Prom Dresses!  
So me and Graham will be attending an 80's prom later this month. So today I pulled out all of my crazy fabrics, tulles, and tights, and stared at them for some time before coming up with several different sketches. Trying to decide on which I like best, what do you guys think?

The first design is dark blue and bright pink, with a pink mesh/lace over the blue on the skirt.
The second is probably my favorite, with a black knit top and bright pink and black houndstooth. I also like this one because I want to make a headband and necklace out of the houndstooth, which was also help show that I actually made my outfit. ;D

Third design is my second favorite, I think the bright colors with the giant bows in the contrasting colors looks VERY 80's.
The last design is in shades of greens, out of very nice fabric left over from dresses I made for weddings, so it's actually porbably the most prom-like fabric out of all these.

I like the first and third, but I'm partial to the fabric for the second one.

My thoughts exactly.

I've figured out how to combine the design of the third, but the fabric of the second. I'm pretty psyched. :D

BTW, me and Graham would like to see you sometime soon(along with Melissa and Brian)!

I have come up with a good solution, and am going to do the third design, but with the houndstooth and a black casa satin! :D

I LOVE YOU and I cannot wait to see this when it is complete. That is all.

Also voting 3rd design as best design!

Awesome, thanks~ Going to start on this today, I think, and post progress shots as I go along. :D

Third design is best! My sister and I have much experience in the 80's prom category - if this is something to boast of, I am unsure.

Oh man I wish -I- had experience in the 80's prom category, that is TOTALLY worth boasting about! X3

Also, your icon is sort of awesome.

I vote that you find shoes like these: http://cgi.ebay.com/GOLD-METALLIC-BOW-Vintage-80s-BALLERINA-FLATS-Shoes-8-5-/310160130236?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Vintage_Shoes&hash=item4836fc00bc and maybe some gold gloves to match, bahahaha.

I also have a ton of faux jewelry somewhere, if you wants to borrow. I bet I could find something purple.

3rd design seems the most 80's! I like the pink houndstooth fabric but the 2nd design doesn't really scream prom OR 80's to me. BIG SLEEVES AND/OR BIG BOWS REQUIRED.

I remembered this morning that I actually had a good amount of black casa left over from Hamel, so I'm going to use that and the pink houndstooth to make the third design. :D And yeah, big bows and sleeves are pretty important. I sort of hate sleeves in general though, so I opted for big bows instead. XD

Third, third third!

Third design, definitely. It is a prom. And agreed: bows are way 80's! Have fun! What's Graham wearing?

Graham wants to make something to match me, we've been thinking maybe a black vest with the lapels in pink houndstooth to match me. :)
