All your tender loving care paid off - that is one beautiful dress! Thanks for the great reveiw and letting us in on all the extras you did to make it turn out so well! Did you make the wrap and the purse too - they match beautifully.

Beautiful dress and DD! Some of my fondest sewing memories involve making prom/dance dresses for my DD. Enjoy it while you can!

You've done a great job. I will remember your praise of muslins-I don't usually want to take the extra time!

What a beautiful dress! Your sewing techniques are impressive. I'm with you, I've learned to love (well, okay, like) hand basting after watching Susan Khalje. Thanks for sharing all the details and the picture of your lovely daughter.

Great job, Elaray. It looks wonderful on her. I know what you mean about labor-intensive; I told my DD that she was going to have to get married in that prom dress - and it was RED.

Your daughter is lucky - great dress, great mom!

Elaray, your daughter looks absolutely gorgeous in this dress! You can tell she is thrilled to be wearing it. You have done a superb job with this. I can't agree more with you about making a muslin and hand basting. Fantastic work!
