19-Teens Inspired Prom Dress 2012 by taylor-of-the-phunk 19-Teens Inspired Prom Dress 2012 by taylor-of-the-phunk
And here it is, the real thing, based on this design: [link]

Shew! I've been working on this for months, not to mention making another one on commission.

So, the breakdown.
The lavender layer has a fully boned underbodice, based on the laurel dress from Patterns of Fashion. I drafted the skirt pattern myself. It's basically a wedge in the front and half an oval in the back. That train is magnificent (and hell to hem)!

The purple lace can come off (it's tacked on). That was my lucky find at the fabric store! Such a lovely color.

The black net I did in one night. It's very simple rectangle shapes, different than what I'd originally planned but still effective.

The belt is actually an antique that my Gram gave me, I don't really know how old it is or who it belonged to, but I love it.

Aaand I made the corsage too. Don't you love my feather?
