Beautifully finished garment! It looks very polished and lovely on her - her faith was well-placed :-)

You did a great job. Love the back of the dress. Your daughter looks beautiful in it. It looks like you took your picture by the window but if not, pictures always turn out better in natural light. If you take it outside, have your subject stand in the shade and not in the direct sunlight. My hubby is a photographer and he gives me instructions on how to improve my photos all the time. Good job mom!

I attached the cups to the lining. I bought them from Needle Nook and that is what Anne told me to do. Works just fine.

Ok, if it's blue, maybe I could wear that color after all. :-D

What a lovely dress! Aren't garments like this satisfying? And I love sewing for my kids!

Very pretty! What a nice style. How did you go about attaching the bra cups? This is something I'd like to try, but I'm worried about distorting the bodice.

Thanks, the dress is powder blue. I am still mastering my flash attachment. Skye, she probably will need a wrap or more of a winter coat, the weather has turned very wintry again.

Lovely dress. Makes a great prom dress: a little different from the run-of-the-mill dresses out there.

Lovely dress and sounds like a good, stress-free pattern (as formals go). So is the dress green or blue - I can't tell from the pics?

what a lovely dress, and I like the matching bag a good idea. Did she need a wrap?
