How to Design Your Own Prom Dress Online Without Sewing

If you are one of those girls who worries about showing up to prom wearing the same dress as another girl, relax -- designing your own prom dress online is relatively simple. You can choose from a variety of options, including material, colour and skirt and sleeve type, to create a one-of-a-kind dress without having to pick up a sewing needle. Once you've designed your dress, print and take the picture to a seamstress who can make the dress for you.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Got to Wedding Dress Creator's website listed in Resources, and click "Start." Choose a skin colour and hair type that is a close match to your own, so you can gauge how different colours and styles will look on you.

  2. 2

    Choose a neckline colour and style. Opt for a modern asymmetrical, classic sweetheart or simple scoop, depending on the overall style you want to achieve. Since the headpiece and other accessories, such as leggings, shoes and gloves, are not part of the dress design, you may leave them marked as "None" or select options for them to get ideas for your overall outfit.

  3. 3

    Select a midriff that coordinates with your neckline choice, and choose a colour. A swirl midriff can hide extra belly fat, while designs such as the ruffle can draw attention to a slim waist.

  4. 4

    Browse through the silhouette styles, and choose one that suits your dress and body shape. Whether long or short, an A-line silhouette is most flattering to a pear-shaped figure, while any silhouette is suitable for an hourglass figure.

  5. 5

    Decide on the shoulder type by looking through options, such as cap, bell, fitted and puff. Since proms typically are held in the spring, you may want to avoid long-sleeved styles.

  6. 6

    Add accessories, such as headpiece, leggings, shoes and gloves, if you would like to see a more finished look. Review your design, and make any necessary adjustments.

  7. 7

    Click "Print," and take your design to a seamstress. She will take your measurements and discuss fabric options, price and payment schedule before starting on your custom dress.
