Hot! MTL: Yellow Bow Prom Dress

While this dress is billed as a "prom dress," its simple silhouette is actually quite appropriate for all those non-prom events in your life. 


Original Inspiration



  • Use a combination of sleeveless view and bow.
  • Cut the ends of the bow shorter for a look closer to the original inspiration, tack the bow in place for a more perky look.

  1. Love this MTL! I especially like that you do not limit MTL to vintage patterns – even though the look you’re posting might have a vintage feel!
    Thank you for MTL – it’s very inspirational!

  2. Oohhh, i like this one. and, coincidence, i just ordered that pattern.

  3. This looks very like a ‘Pushing Daisies’ dress. You need to do some of those in the MTL category!

  4. Hrm…I already own this pattern. I should do it! I love sunny yellow…..after I finish the 6 other projects I have planned…:P

  5. I just ordered this pattern after seeing it here, I am not planning on making it in the yellow as yet, but you never know! I totally love the MTL posts and look forward to seeing them, especially as I love ModCloth but live in the UK and a fair few inspiration pictures are from there.
