Hi everyone!...Here is a picture of my prom dress that my grandmother made.  She asked me to get comment of what other people thought of it...and I only remember about 4 of them....so I am asking the craftsters for help.  I figured its the least I could do after her spending over 30 hours of sewing time on a dress that had 146 steps.  For future refrences...dont make this dress...or have anyone make this dress........unless you want to be constantly cussed out until its finished....Thanks in advance..

That is stunning! I'm working on my prom dress right now, and earlier in the year that pattern was in the running... until I looked at the instructions. Tell your grandmother that she's highly skilled and that the work payed off!

It looks amaazzing on you. I wish I had someone who loved me enough to spend that kind of time on me. What are you wearing underneath to combat the opaqueness? or is that a lining?
