PROM DIY: Make Your Own Beautiful Designer-Inspired Prom Dress For Under $100!

By Arianna Berk

Here it is! The third and final post in the Runway DIY/HuffPost Teen Prom 2012 DIY Series. We’ve made rings, we’ve made shoes and now it’s time for the dress! My beautiful little cousin Tillie was kind enough to be my model for the final post -- lucky for me, I have a teenage supermodel for a cousin!

If you're scrambling for an affordable, last-minute prom dress, try this super simple, no-sewing-machine-needed DIY. The inexpensive strapless dress was purchased from Forever 21 and you can buy tulle at any fabric store. It’s great for this because it doesn’ t fray so you don’t need to hem it. The entire series -- the rings, shoes and dress –- cost less than $100. Everything together came to $86.93! Look runway-ready for prom without breaking the bank. Have fun! XO
