So I made my own Winter Ball dress in highschool by ripping apart a really old and ugly blue satin high neck dress, and bought the shear fabric. It changed color in the light- from blue to purple.
I used the blue satin for under the shear fabric and for the sash and big bow tied in the back. The sash in the front was attached and runched, I stole the idea from an old dress I had.
I also made one of my friends her prom dress. She picked out the fabric, and the jewels in the top were actually from the sleeves of the dress I ripped apart to make that Winter Ball dress.
I stole these pictures from myspace since I never got to take pictures of it.
Her dress is the coral one with a yell ow sash.
The back had a nice big bow.
I really like how the front turned out, with runching to the straps, and the jewels.
