My little sister Sariah asked me to make her prom dress this year. Although she didn’t have specifics in mind, she was sure that she wanted something very classic, with a fitted 50’s waist-line and skirt. Something sweet, something simple.
We decided to use this pattern for the top, and then add a waistline and full skirt. It has a chiffon overlay over the skirt, although it turned out pretty subtle. I added the beading to give it an extra little dazzle.
Oh my goodness, doesn’t she look lovely?? To be seventeen again, and with that waistline….oh wait. I think I was probably 12 when I last had that waistline. But this dress fits her delicate waistline so perfectly. I mean literally, it’s a great fit; but the dress itself–so sweet, so lovely–just like my girl Sope.
