Zombie from the Eighties
- Reconstructed 1980s Prom Dress
- Zombie Dress: White satin & lace
Halloween Costume
- Small to Medium

The Prom was 25 years ago...and she disappeared that night. I found her dress....somewhere.

I've hesitated at listing this dress because the lace is yellowing over time. It has been cleaned -- it still has the dry-cleaning tag. But several areas of the lace are yellowing. Maybe it's from the dry-cleaning solution, maybe it's intrinsic to the age of the lace. Or maybe it's something this high school miss ran into after her prom -- maybe she spilled the Devil's Brew, or voodoo water was tossed on her by The Evil One! And they're on the back, so you never have to see them!

This white satin Prom gown has been slashed and tattered and frayed. The lace cover has been mended with black Zombie serging. The wide deep V neckline has a long diagonal slash of long black tatters of tricot streaming down from the center. More white tricot tatters, as well as more black ones, flow diagonally from more serging below the waist front and back. More black tatters cross the zipper in the back (where the first yellowing appeared), and are held in place by a sash of tulle that crosses the shoulder and ties in a bow near the waist. The remains of her Queen of the Prom sash???

The huge puff sleeves -- all three layers of satin, net, and rayon lining, have long black serge thread tatter points twining down the edges of the butchered sleeves. They have elastic gathers at the shoulder -- which you can let fall off your shoulders, since the dress is boned, and will stand on its own.

The skirt is quite gathered, and is a curved over-wrap. which crosses in the front, but could blow open completely in a blast of a dervish wind.

Black tricot tatters, white tatters, hang diagonally across the front and back of the gown -- some short, some long. All the tatters on this PROM ZOMBIE DRESS are asymmetric and different lengths. I've left all the serging threads long to add to the tattered look.
