Very nice, and it fits so well. How nice to be able to dance, without worrying about "upsetting the fruit basket!" Great job!

Very lovely with a great fit and beautiful color. Remind her not to wear a bra the day of the dance so she doesn't have an indentation on her back.

Needless to say, this is one gorgeous dress.

Thanks for this very helpful review, Sue. The dress is very elegant & your shirring method deserves a spot in the tips section. (I certainly had a good giggle over the "cantalopes"! 8^D)

My favorite dance dresses were always red, so I enjoyed seeing this one. Lovely dress and thanks for all the tips on the shirring.

It's okay Mom - DD has a lovely back, which is a feature that is actually fairly rare IMO - she looks great!

Very classy dress -- your DD will be the envy of the other girls. I like the way you did the shirring -- I'll remember that. Your tale makes me nostalgic for the days when I made formals for my own DD, two of which are still hanging in her closet because I can't bring myself to part with them.

You know what they say about a red never forget it. ;) This one will be especially memorable. Great job.

One of the *best* dressed, I'd say! How perfectly elegant. Good job with the cantalope covering =) And, good luck to your DD with the SAT.
