    So much classier than most of the dresses I've seen around here. Excellent project.

    I made my daughter's prom dress last year. I felt the same way - couldn't wait to get back to quilting!

    How beautiful! When I think of the prom dresses of my day-no comparison. She is one lucky GD.

    That is beautiful, you are very talented! btw, do you find a dress-form is accurate for sewing to fit? I know some say they are adjustable. I have a duct-tape dummy half made. I made it in two parts so I just need to put them together and size them.

    Even with a dress form I try on each section as I go. I don't trust the fit. Let me know how the duct-tape dummy works.

    Beautiful dress! Brings back memories of all the prom dresses I sewed for my girls. Now to find the scraps and make a crazy quilt from them! I also made quite a few dresses for some of their friends. All this before I really got into quilting!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
