I am NOT showing this review to my DD! Egads! What if she wanted something similar? You did a great job, *both* of you.

To Valoir: I just found your review for your wedding's GORGEOUS! I have that pattern in my stash and have wanted to try it. (I have attempted the other view and it was an utter mess.) I think your gown fits you so beautifully. I love the brooches and the back drape and godet...stunning modifications!

Beautiful dress. It reminds me of my wedding gown (modified vogue 7387) I made this year. Working with the slippery fabric and on the bias required 4 muslins - I wish my mom had offered to sew it for me. Your daughter is so lucky.

Thank you all for your kind comments! Babepaley, thank you for your suggestion about just recently was sent this site by a friend and enjoy looking at it. Yes, lots of memories making this dress...the drawings, the muslins, the frustration and tears...plenty of laughs, too, thank goodness, or we wouldn't be planning this year's Prom dress right now...

AWESOME job. Lovely gal in a lovely dress. What a Mom you are. It is great that you and your daughter have this relationship. My Mom made my prom dress so many years ago. It is a good memory.

You might want to pick Alexandra's brain at for more advice about sewing on the bias. She does some stunning 30s-style gowns. Here's an exquisite example: btw, congrats on the gown. You not only made a dress you made memories, which is even more special. I hope you documented your journey!

Wos! Leary of working in bias after making a close-fitting silk charmeuse dress? Honey, you have made it to the land of advanced sewing and beyond. Stunning dress and thank you for the detailed review.

I am in awe... Thank you for the detailed review. I didn't understand half of what I was reading (my ignorance; not your writing), but I was enthralled all the same. I can't wait until next prom!

Wow! That's a great dress! The interesting thing about charmeuse is that it is SO drapey by itself (straight grain) that it positively slithers when it's on bias. I learned the hard way with a bias-cut blouse for a full-busted friend about 30 years ago. Yikes! :D

Great dress! What a lucky daughter, and how nice that you can work together and come up with something so perfect. Love the color, too.

This dress should be in a fashion magazine! Elegant, unique - just beautiful. Excellent job - you both should be proud.

Jeez.... That IS STUNNING! I love the retro look and the cups and the back strapping is just what I would have wished for if I had someone to make my prom gown 12 years ago.

This is something we all strive for - a unique design all our own. Stunning.
