After checking out prom dresses on Pinterest for color and design inspiration -
For my first Tux/Gown set - I went with a sweetheart/Valentine's theme. The white part lifts out so you can put treats inside the 'boxes'. The boxes are 2 1/4" x 2" x 2". But you can re-size if you are using the SVG files.
I made the ladies gown red adding a layered die cut flower with a rhinestone heart on one side and balancing it by adding the bow-tie piece along the waist.
For the gentleman - I coordinated with the ladies gown by making the bow tie red and adding red heart rhinestones for buttons. The pleats are made with my Scor Pal as per Adela's instructions. Gosh, aren't these the cutest things??
For my second set I went with spring prom colors - making the gown and tux yellow. What a well coordinated couple!! I used the same die cut flower here but made two of them adding rhinestones to the centers
I was never brave enough to wear a strapless gown (!) so I thought I'd try to add spaghetti straps to this one.
I used black jute for the straps and just taped each piece to the inside of the box and wrapped them around to the other side and taped them on the other side. This shows the top of the box lifted out of the gown piece.
Here's how it looks from the back. (Do these spaghetti straps make my back look fat??!! LOL!!) The jute is a little feathery but it was the only thing I had in my stash that would work as a thin strap. (I tried cutting a satin ribbon and a velvet ribbon but they frayed!) I added a piece of black satin ribbon along the 'waist' of the dress.
