So about a week and a half ago, my sister decided she wanted me to make her a dress for her homecoming dance... The dance is tonight. So I took her measurements and had her find a dress she liked online so I could make her one. She picked a short poofy one with the midsection exposed and told me what she wanted changed on it and what she wanted to keep. I said alright and got to work on making the pattern.
There were a lot of twerks that needed working out: from having to take it in at the waist, to have to add more fabric to the back so it covered a little more, to adding in some boning. But all in all I think it came out very nicely.
Here's the dress hanging up:

And here's the dress on her:

So what do you think? Cheesy

Wow! Pretty! Of course, she could look a little happier, with all the time and trouble I am sure you put into it!!! Just kidding. She looks to be a sweet sister, and you are a great sister for helping her. I hope she has/had a grand night at the ball!  Grin


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.

haha she was very happy for the dress but I took the picture at an awkward time xD my mother was also taking a picture and my phone took it slower than hers did. lol
But thank you! She had a great time and loved the dress and decided to wear it for halloween and be Cinderella!

The dress is pretty well at the front, but i do not like that much when look back. By the way, your daughter is very pretty.
