So I decided to try to make my daughters dress this time. With her in school and working and me waiting til the last minute to decide how I was going to do it, ( I like to change my mind every 5 minutes Undecided) I ended up doing the whole thing the day before Prom and then hurry up and fit it like an hour before they left for the evening. I also decided that his tie needed to match since he is the one who loves Hot Pink. LOL
So I started with this dress she had hanging in her closet that was a handme down from a friend.

Of course it had to be a rainy day for Prom.....

This is the dress that was the inspiration for the final product unfortunetly I didn't get the skirt part done. They were both happy with the outcome and got lots of comments on the dress and the tie. Everyone wanted to know where they found a tie to match and were surprized when she told them her mom made it. They said "Wow Cool!" I guess that's the best compliment a mom can ask for when teenagers think something is Cool!

thank you so much. I am a ferfectionist so I see all the flaws, and really wish it would've been better but they loved it so that is what really counts. She said it was her best Prom ever. Yay!

Love it.l  And I love all these hand made/re-purposed prom dresses. They are so much cooler than the hideous thing I wore in my pre-craft days.
