Make your Prom Dress Unique 

Choosing what to wear on your prom night can be a difficult choice. There are so many different styles and options out there that it can be quite overwhelming to decide what it is that you want! There is also always the fear that you’ll turn up wearing the exact same gown as somebody else. So, how do you make a prom dress so unique that you don’t need to overthink everything? Keep reading for some tips on how the addition of alterations can help to create your very own unique prom dress.

Different ways to create your own unique prom dress

Add something extra

Just because your dress looks a certain way when you buy it doesn’t mean you can’t change it up. Additional features can be added to your chosen prom dress to make it even more special and unique to you. Whether you are looking for an extra touch of sparkle, or want a lace overlay for the bodice of your dress, alterations are available to make the dress exactly what you dreamed of. It also gives you the opportunity to try out some different options before committing to actually fully changing the dress, so you can see what you think looks best on you before the first stitch is sewn in place.

Design something yourself

If you have a specific idea in mind of what you want, and you want to make sure it’s something that nobody else out there will have, then why not design your own? Working with a seamstress, you can create a bespoke design that is the prom dress you’ve always dreamed of. Even better, the dress will be created specifically for you and your body, meaning the fit will be absolutely exceptional. Designing your own gown is a fantastic way to get involved in the process and create a unique dress, picking out even the smallest of details.

Recycle an inherited dress

Many of us have siblings, cousins, friends, and family members who have been to a prom of their own. It can be quite special to wear a prom dress that someone close to you has worn in the past, but what can you do to make it unique and really feel like your own dress? Transforming an old gown is a fantastic way to take control of how you want to look on your special night. This can mean simply having it altered to fit you properly, or completely redesigning the style and using the same fabric. Prom dresses are high-quality, so there is no need to worry about the material feeling old or worn. 



Alterations are a great way to create a prom dress that is uniquely you. Whether that means adding features to a dress you have already chosen, creating something from scratch, or upcycling an old dress, alterations can create the dress of your dreams.
