And while it will probably take you a few hours to make, the materials are very inexpensive. If you’re on a budget, this is the skirt for you!

Here was the cost of my skirt:

$3.50 – 3 yards of tulle
$10.00 – 1 yard underlayer fabric
$1.50 – 1 yard elastic

$15 – total

You could get a little crazier with some fancy tulle (something with sparkles or sequins) and a more expensive underlayer (satin, taffeta, etc.) and still be well under $50 for your total budget!

Unique Handmade Prom Dresses for 2011

My 8th grade graduation was the first formal event I ever went to. I was so excited to pick out a special dress for the big night… so imagine my horror when my arch nemesis showed up wearing the Exact. Same. Dress.

Luckily, I’m here to make sure you don’t make the same mistake I did. The dresses, gowns, skirts, corsets, and accessories here are so unique, you won’t run the risk of playing Twinsies on your big night.

A little gothic, a touch of punk, and some rockabilly sass, there’s something here for anyone wanting to take the alternative route to Prom, Homecoming, or any other formal event.
