my dear granddaughter call me the other day and asked if i can make her a dress for the Prom.. 3 days later here it is.. the Prom is Saturday ..I hope she likes it.. not real low cut since it is a Christian High School.. and just above the knee.. I hate putting in zippers and I struggled with it all morning.. basted by hand first.. then sewing it in on the machine.. three layers on the skirt.. over, lining and the slip..

Stunning colour and your grand-daughter looked fabulous in it. So good of you to do it in such a short time. I'm so glad that she asked you to do it, how special and something she will remember for the rest of her life. Love Chris

It is gorgeous. She will be the belle of the prom. Don't forget to post pictures of her wearing this beautiful dress.

She looks stunning in the dress. Nice to see the young ones looking like Ladies grown up but not tarty.
You did a wonderful job of it in a rush time.

You found her picture below, and yes she was beautiful in her gown!

The sheer happiness on her face will always be remembered by you and she will always remember that her grandma made her gown and how special she felt. So glad you were able to accomplish it in time. 3 days notice is not much if there would have been any problems. Glad you were able to figure out how to manage the multiple layers while putting in the zipper. She looked radiant! Good Job Grandma!!

I love periwinkle. I wore it for my daughter's wedding. Wonderful job. Next time she should give you more time. Nothing like pressure!!! I know she is happy.

Have just seen your lovely granddaughter in her dress. Stunning.

by peafarm 02 Nov 2015

It is wonderful--Never made one from a pattern but have hemmed formals and I absolutely hate that sheer and slinky fabric. Won't do it anymore--for anyone! I love the color and am sure your granddaughter will love it.

by dailylaundry 02 Nov 2015

Your Granddaughter will love it!! I have to baste things too sometimes!!

by asterixsew Moderator 02 Nov 2015

This looks lovely and how nice that your grand daughter asked you to make it. Love the colour
