Prom Adventures – Chapter 4

Leave a comment

Another one bites the dust.  The second dress is done.  I think of two words when I look at it, fun and sophistication.  It’s a beautiful blue, with a ruched midriff and a draped skirt.  I remember wearing the side drapes on the hips when I was much, much younger and much, much smaller.


I am so glad I remembered how to drape the pattern for the skirt on the dressform. 

I will be pulling an all-nighter on my daughter’s dress.  I can’t complain that she focused on school instead of prom dresses.  Her head was in the right place.  Today she received a letter from the school informing her that she is the salutatorian for her senior class.  That will keep a smile on my face as I finish her dress.

I started sewing when I was 11 years old, and had my own clients when I was 12. I graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries, majoring in fashion design. I expanded my technical background by attending evening classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology and working many years at a major pattern company. I have been creating custom wedding gowns and evening dresses for more years than I care to count. I LOVE WORKING WITH FABRICS. I love fine sewing techniques. I love creating beautiful dresses.
