I'm impressed! 1) that you made your OWN - high school (?) prom dress, 2) that it is very tasteful and elegant (high school?) 3) that it fits perfectly and is obviously very well made and 4) that you selected perfect fabric for the pattern.......I'm impressed! GREAT JOB! HIGH SCHOOL!!!?? Have a great Prom!

Megan, you will be the queen of the prom in your amazing dress. You just look beautiful in your prom creation with your perfect figure, face, and spirit. I also am a lover of large earring. Enjoy your jewelry and shoes; all are perfect!

It's absolutely beautiful! I loved flipping through all your pictures. Your sewing is just perfect and so is the 'pouf'! You belong on the cover of a glossy magazine. Your dress is more beautiful than many designer creations you see on the red carpet!

Well, I hope they have a red carpet entrance at your prom because this dress is red carpet-worthy! All that work you put into planning and fitting paid off in this gorgeous, one-of-a-kind dress. I agree with Annette that you need a pretty cotton one for summer! :-) I love the perfect pouf at the hem and also love the ties you added. The perfect touch. It's beautiful, Meggie. Don't forget to update this review with pictures from prom night!

I LLOOOOVVE the teal fabric,the pattern style is wonderful.The dress when finished will look gorgeous and be a show stopper, so will only need the earings,an upstyle,stillettos and a manicure(maybe a sparkley pin or 5 in the upstyle)Can't wait to see it finished.

Omigosh, how very 'trendy' of you to use a 'vintage' - inspired pattern. I love it! The color of your fabric is simply divine! I have missed your posts and I will be following your progress on this one. Have fun with your prom creation my young friend, and enjoy your teenage years! :)
