In spite of letters, fashion shows and in-store queries all pointing to the need for modest dresses, most designers and manufacturers have failed to get the message. You can spend hours in malls and boutiques or online and still come up with zero options. Consequently, many girls, with the help of their mothers, have turned to good old patterns and sewing machines to make their own prom dresses. Whether they turn out as beautifully or not; it's better than going without.

Dark eyes, for instance, should be matched up with dramatic black prom gowns or rich shades like bronze.
Thirdly, if you are planning to hide the weight of your body, do not feel like that you will look slimmer by wearing a black prom gown. While people assert that black is "slimming," you may not believe, it is not always the case. What's more important is that the cut of your dress and how it is designed to emphasize your best features. If you are wearing a plus size prom attire, don't be afraid to choose a bold color that goes well with your skin or eyes.
Last but not the least, ask a friend or relative with sharp sense on the fashion stuff to help with a color test. Let a critical eye judge which colors you're your type and transfer it to prom outfit you are going to buy.
Unfortunately, sewing seems to be a dying art and the price of fabric has risen. Making clothes used to be the inexpensive way to clothe a family, but now the cost of materials (like fabric, buttons, zippers and thread) is high enough to make even women with the machinery and skills think twice about putting together a modest and beautiful prom dress. On the other hand, proms don't come around that often and they certainly do mean a lot to high school girls. Even without a date, most girls admit that the chance to dress up makes the evening a wonderful event.
