Aw Yes! The romantic dream of every young girl....her prom dress....awwwwww......
Well, the production has begun. India has filled up notebook after notebook with designs of her dream dress, ever since she was about 10 years old. Now it is up to mama to bring her design to life. Prom is next Saturday, April 25. So......I may be sewing night and day, with a few bathroom breaks, a few swigs of coffee, and maybe a piece of toast or a bite or two of chocolate.
But here are the elements of the dress.
Ten yards of teal taffeta, purchased last year on clearance at $2.00 a yard,
One half yard of teal minkee for the underside of the shawl, boning, thread, interfacing, invisible zipper, Wonder Tape, and gorgeous satin ribbon.

So....bring on the Doris Day movie marathon and let the creating begin!!!!!
