That is just sweet and elegant. I agree that duchess satin is great. You did a great job creating the dress and your daughter will always cherish that you made her prom dress.

Absolutely elegant and lovely on your daughter! The lace creates a completely different look... beautiful!

Very nice and flattering. Thanks for the tip about adding the ruffles to the lining.

Don't you just love it when your kids are happy with your sewing capabilities. This looks fabulous and her date looks pretty happy to be going with your beautiful daughter.

You had two prom dresses to make? No wonder you are glad the prom is over! Gorgeous dress!

A real winner! I agree your version is better than the ones shown on the pattern jacket. Your daughter looks like she loves the way she looks; that's what it's all about. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Susan, what a precious little jewel you've created for your pretty daughter! (Don't you love Duchess Satin; it's so cooperative.) The lace is an elegant touch, and your daughter looks so happy in it. I love Happy Endings! Lovely, Lily
