Default Prom dress

I know this is a quilting board and I hope it's OK if I share a prom dress that I made for my beautiful granddaughter. She chose the fabrics and the pattern herself. I altered the pattern to make it the exact style she wanted. I even added pockets in the skirt and attached the overlay to them so the pockets hide in the folds of her dress. She loves it! Prom is tonight so I can finally show the finished dress. She is a happy girl and planning her dress for next year already.

That's absolutely beautiful. Love the fabric she picked out. It's so *flowy* and airy looking. She will be the talk of the town in that beauty.
