Judging from the many blog posts and Facebook updates, most of you already know it's Prom Season - a fact that has not been lost on me, either. But, unlike the other prom dresses I've cranked out for my daughter in the past, this time it's for HER prom. Baby Girl is graduating, and this one must be special.
I would LOOOOOOOVE to tell you what pattern I'm using and the modifications I'm planning in order to make this dress truly "hers". As it turns out, I've been advised that all dress making plans fall under the realm of "Emanne's intellectual property" and must remain covert until the dress's grand unveiling. You'd think she was getting ready to walk Oscar's red carpet!!
I have, however, been given permission to show you the fabric choices. The dress's main body will be made of white crepe and accented with a golden-yellow charmeuse and beaded trim. I feel it's safe to mention the dress will be constructed from two different patterns.
Also, I recently became a member of the Sewn Up sewing group on Facebook, to which Tawnya Anderson posted the FRANKENPATTERNS sewing challenge, so the timing to participate in this challenge couldn't be more perfect.
Emanne and I both believe this dress will be absolutely beautiful and I'm really looking forward to creating it and sharing the details with you.
