So, for my graduation, my school said that all the girls had to wear a lightly colored dress and white shoes. Looking in the stores, I realized that a lot of the dresses met the standard and appealed to me. So, I decided to make my own dress. It is made out of a bridal fabric and has a blue ribbon across the waist. It is made with Butterick 5322.
Here are the Front and Back Views. There is featherweight boning in the bodice so that it will stay up. The dress is secured in the back with a zipper.
Here are pictures of the back skirt and bow. The bow was not the way that I wore it to graduation because I was the only one who knew how to tie it, so the pictures here are just for show. The bow pictured is actually made up of two pieces of ribbon: the one attached to the dress and an extra one.
So that's my graduation dress.
