So I made my prom dress, I didn't realize that I had so much pink but people complimented me so I don't feel as bad being a big girl in such a bright Easter pink.... Well anyway, here you go:










I didn't actually make the shawl, I bought it earlier that day, I was surprised it matched!


Chiffon on charmeuse


Elastic is a big girl's best friend...



and here's the hand beading on the front and back of my left shoulder...

Well thank you for looking, you all have a blessed day...

That is so pretty.  I love that delicate shade of pink, and the shawl/stole is beautiful with it.  You look lovely. I'm not surprised you had so many compliments.

Boldly going where others have probably been.
