A combined effort between me, my mum and my grandma for my senior formal. Finished half an hour before the formal (prom for those in America). The colour is deeper than it comes out in the photos. It's a much blue-er red. The closest to it is the top detail. And the dress somehow managed to get crushed in the 5 min car ride to the formal...hoorah satin!

Top detail:


Back Detail (that nearly killed us all):


Full length at formal with 2 of my best friends:


With my date, another best friend and her date:


I do love how co-ordinated we all are.

It nearly killed us, but it came out well i think. Your thoughts?
