Refashion a prom dress to look like a mix of Snow White’s dress and Belle’s dress. Add tucks to the skirt and a yellow fabric covered petticoat.
When I was in high school I wanted my formal dresses to be different from everyone else because I feel like everyone always looked the same. I bought a cheap, simple, modest A-line royal blue dress at a discount store.
I wore a poofy slip with it and added a pale yellow to the bottom. I used a LOT of fabric, a high gathering ratio, and gathered it to make it very full. On the dress I gathered little spots by hand here and there. I put yellow sequins and beads at each little tuck.
Also, I beaded yellow beads around the empire waist to pull together the colors. All my friends told me they couldn’t decide if I looked like Snow White or Belle.
Don’t miss all these other dress refashions!
The dress was just one size too big. To easily fix this I just added two darts in the back neckline to bring it in. I don’t remember if I changed the side seams at all. I’m guessing that the back just gapped a little so I fixed it with the darts.
If your dress needs more alterations so that you’ll actually wear the dress, you can also make a dress longer wich is essentially the opposite of what I did here. The tucks made the dress shorter, and then the yellow under skirt made the look floor lenght. You can try to add sleeves to a dress or to line a lace dress.
