DIY Peekaboo Prom Dress with Huff Post Teen

Here it is! The third and final post in the Runway DIY/Huff Post Teen Prom 2012 DIY Series. We’ve made rings, we’ve made shoes, and now it’s time for the dress! My beautiful little cousin Tillie was kind enough to be my model for the final post. I felt like a huge weirdo trying to model prom wear at 24. Lucky for me I have a teenage super model for a cousin!

Try this super simple, no-sewing-machine-needed DIY below. The strapless dress was purchased from Forever 21 and you can purchase tulle at any fabric store. It’s great for this because it doesn’ t fray so you don’t need to hem it. The entire series- the rings, shoes and dress – cost less than $100. Everything together came to $86.93! Look runway-ready for prom without breaking the bank. Have fun! XO

  1. Cute! And now I want sprinkles :) (grr)!

  2. This is amazing, such a brilliant, inspirational idea!

  3. Perfect prom dress! I feel like lately alot of the dresses I’ve seen out there are so risque and show a little too much. This one is still trend, yet kind of sophisticated as well. And for $86.93 you can’t go wrong!

  8. Hey,

    Tillie looks so good! I love the dress, I have a lot of white tulle lying around so I may try making one…but only to wear around the house? Ahaha. No prom coming up for me.

    I can’t find where you posted it but somehow I am getting hits on my etsy store Visitation from your site, so thank you so much for that!
