Hey there everyone!
I just wanted to show this dress that I made for the formal ball at Anime Boston this year, and maybe get some feedback on it, since I figured that a lot of you guys might be interested in it.

and some detail shots (sorry they're so small. I had to choose between so huge that it took up the entire screen and really tiny, so I went with the tiny)

and the original sketch

Just to let y'all know, I'm a fashion design student, and I've done some other designs for other fancy ace attorney inspired gowns in my free time that I figure some of you guys might be interested in. (all drawn on the same croquis because I'm lazy)
Spoiler: Other assorted designs

Franziska Von Karma

I'm working on a couple more designs at the moment, but yeah, just wondering what you guys thought!
(I also go by sassytail on tumblr so before anyone accuses me of stealing all of this, it is actually mine.)
New design!!:

hahah well I do intend to make another ace attorney ballgown eventually, but keep in mind that it's a very labour and cost intensive process.
In total, the materials alone in that dress were about 200 dollars, and it took me about 25 hours to draft the pattern, test the pattern in cheap fabric, and sew the final piece. I don't have the money to buy the materials to make another dress at the moment, unless I were to sew it for a class and get my parents to pay for supplies, but I can keep designing them.

Ahh, thank you!!!
I'm so glad! I made it to wear as trucy at a convention, so it's pretty good that people can imagine trucy wearing it, since that was the entire goal.

That's amazing! I love how you've retained the core of the design/character while completely changing the type of clothing.

You'd better take pictures of yourself [or whoever it is] actually wearing this!

Wow. :pearl-blush: Sewing and stuff is way out of my league, so I'm very impressed. I mean, I'd be any way, but you know what I mean. Awesome!



I'm not gonna ask if you made panties to go with it I'm not gonna...

That is the ultimate goal whenever you design something based on something else, so it's awesome to hear that I've done that so well.
And I fully intend to get some good pictures with my lovely polly on the sunday of the con! Thats about 5 weeks away though, so it'll be a while before I can post them.
I have some low quality phone photos though
I have one picture at a weird angle in bad lighting

and in this photo, it was held together entirely by pins and the seam in the dress was in an odd spot
