Things to Consider When Designing Your Prom Dress
Aside from the graduation ceremony, the prom is perhaps the most memorable event in a teenager’s high school career. This is certainly true for young women. She has spent all year, if not more, planning for this big day. She has spent the entire year, if not more, planning for this great day. From the shoes on her feet to the accessories in her hair, every detail, no matter how small, must be planned and thought out.
Choosing the perfect ball gown requires careful consideration, time, and patience. Many high school girls go to the department store, say no to bridal shops and decide to design their own ball gown. It is an exciting experience to have your own custom-designed ball gown, but there are a few things to keep in mind during the design process.
Things to keep in mind when designing your prom dress:
What exactly do I want? The decision to design your own prom dress is usually made because you want to stand out from the crowd and your custom-made dress is a unique reflection of your style. If you’re not a fashion designer by trade, developing an idea is often the hardest part. Take a stack of magazines and look at what Hollywood stars wear on the red carpet. Cut out the photos and create a scrapbook of design ideas. Then take a trip to the local department store and a bridal shop. Although the goal of designing your own gown is not to look like you bought it off the shelf, it’s still a good idea to take a look at the competition, see what fabrics are in it, and get ideas.
What style of dress suits me best?
This is an important question that must be answered during the dress design process. Even if you don’t design your own gown, you should make sure that the cut, length, and shape of the dress suits your body. If you have a lot of weight on your upper body, you probably don’t want to design a gown that is cut too low. Besides the fact that it is not very elegant, you will feel very uncomfortable if you try to adjust the dress all night long. If you are on the short side, a long dress, long as the floor, may or may not be the best choice for you. A long dress can make you look even shorter, so you should design a dress that lengthens your body. If you are too big, designing your own gown may be the best option for you. But, again, make sure the style fits your body type.
Where can I find someone to sew my custom ball gown?
You’ve spent the weekend brainstorming, now you need the person who will actually sew the dress! It is better to leave the making of the ball gown to a professional. If you are lucky, you may have a seamstress in your family who can do this for you, if not, you will have to find someone. Ask your friends or visit local alteration tailors for references. Once you’ve found your seamstress, you can start selecting the perfect print and fabric for your gown.
What fabric should I choose for my ball gown?
Now that you’ve found a seamstress, it’s time to go fabric shopping. Talk to your seamstress first, it is important to ask if there are any restrictions. Restrictions are additional costs that are added to your total price depending on the type of fabric you choose. For example, silk can be a very delicate and expensive fabric. Therefore, some seamstresses charge a little extra if a customer uses silk. When you are in the fabric store, you have to think about one thing: the lighting and how a color or a fabric is photographed. Take your digital camera and photograph the different fabrics you are interested in. Then go home and upload the digital image to your computer. Do you still like the color? Does it look the same in your photos? The fabric that looked navy blue in the fabric store might look more like Barney purple in your graduation photos.
What about my prom date, what was he supposed to wear? It’s so easy to forget about guys in the prom dress design process. But coordination with your date is really important. Ask your seamstress if she can design a vest, scarf, girdle, or tie for your date. Many seamstresses will pay for this for free with the leftover fabric from their dress.
This should be an exciting and stress-free time in your life, so keep that in mind while planning your prom. Above all, the fun of this special night comes first.
