A Dress for the Dance

Caroline and 5 of her friends signed up for an Independent Study this semester. After making the costumes for the Shakespeare production, the girls decided to make their 8th grade dance dresses.

Spring Break became a dress-making holiday!

First Caroline had to cut out the pattern.

Then she had to pin the pattern pieces to the fabric.

Cutting the pieces out came next.

Finally, she was able to begin sewing.

The dress Caroline chose is a strapless dress which requires boning to make the bodice stay up!

Here is the bodice attached to the midriff.

Even the inside is pretty!

Ta-da! The final product - almost. It needs a zipper, a hem ... and some straps to meet dress code.
