Prom Dress Preview

Tomorrow is prom.  And the dress is just about done.

Here's what I still need to do:

hem the dress

cut off some of the sash length and finish the edges

unpick a couple of stay stitch lines that are showing

sew on a hook and eye

That's all!

Here's a preview - keep in mind I am planning to shorten the sash...

This first photo is in the early dress making stages - the skirt was A-line at that point.  We decided to make the skirt straight - you can see that in the next photo...


I'm not sure what I did, but I think my camera angle is kind of odd in this photo - oh well....  you can see the straight skirt, and the pink sash and the cute little cap sleeves.

Isn't the bow cute?  And the little train? And look how perfectly the little v's lined up along the zipper.  You can't see the zipper because it is invisible!  wahaha....


We found some costume jewelry at an antique store in town for Hannah to wear.  This is a lovely earring and necklace set with rhinestones and pearls.  The earrings kind of screw on.  I thought I took a picture of the little train pinned up in the back, but I guess not.  We found a rhinestone pin that she is using to pin the train up for dancing - so cute...


More photos tomorrow!
