#337 The Duct Tape Prom Dress

This was  a frickin' blast to make with Mekayla. She was awesome to work with. We thought we had months and months... turns out we had more like 6 weeks. But she was a trooper, heck her whole family showed up and helped on multiple occasions. She was really happy with her dress and looked sooooo cute in the awesome pictures Benjy Feen took last night when she was on the way to the prom with Alise.

The only other thing I have to say is that 6 yards of duct tape fabric turns out to weight a ton... the next time I do a princess cake topper dress I am going back to good old fabric.


  1. How in the world did you make your prom dress? Did you follow a specific pattern?

  2. I used a basic corset pattern as a base and the skirt is a basic 3/4th circle skirt. Simplicity has a good basic corset pattern if you are a slim person that isn't too generous in the bust.
