Senior Prom 2009
This is my daughter's prom dress that I made for her. She basically told me how she wanted it, so I measured her made a pattern and this is the result. I sewed every sequin on ONE BY ONE. She's lucky I love her so much. Haha. She'd probably have a fit if she knew I posted her on here looking like a hot mess, but this was just the last fitting. I still have to hem and press it. Will post more pix later when she's all dolled up.

I have to admit, I am proud of myself on this one.

UPDATE: Added a couple more pix of her all dressed up and ready to go. I also made her earrings and necklace.

I made the pattern and not sure I still have it. It was actually a modification of another pattern that I had also of which my daughter was smaller.
