Three of the reasons I agreed to make the dress were
1) so that the dress would fit properly,
2) so that no one else would be wearing the same dress, and
3) because she could have an original dress that would otherwise cost HUNDREDS for $130 in materials plus countless hours of labor!
First we picked a pattern, some fabric, and some lace.
Then I sewed and sewed.
Yes, it was a LOT of work, but the smile on her face when she went off to prom feeling like
a princess in her "vintage" original it was all worth it!
