    I can't believe my DD is old enough for the prom. It was a junior/senior prom so we will have to do it again next year with these 2. I better start saving my money because I told her we would go all out for the senior prom next year as if this one didn't cost me an arm and a leg already. I look at that dress and shoes and think to myself, look at all the fabric I could have bought. LOL!!!!! I am bad mommy!!!!

    They really do make a wonderful couple.

    Thank you for looking.

    Lovely! I'll have to show my granddaughter, who is 15. She has black hair, with streaks of red, purple, blue...it is all the rage here in New England. These kids look so happy!

    Beautiful pictures! They make a sweet couple. It is hard when they grow up..my (only) son turned 16 a few weeks ago...
    I know what you mean about fabric..I value everything in terms of how much fabric I could have bought instead...oh the evils of quilting!

    I would be thinking after the prom that there had to be something in the dress that could be used to make a quilt.

    Wait til school gets out, she will have muti-colored hair. They can't have anything but natural colored hair in school here. She barely gets away with it this way.

    My daughter's senior prom was last night, too. No more girl proms in this house. I really shouldn't complain. We have never spent over $100 for a prom. The girl was born cheap.

    It is all satin fabric so I won't be using it for anything.

    Before buying this dress we hit every thrift shop trying to find something that would fit her. If she had been a bean pole then we would have many choices. Any dress' we found for a girl of her size was down right ugly and frumpy.

    Thank you everyone. She does look a lot like me but she totally has my personality so I feel sorry for Travis sometimes but he loves her just the she is.

    Charming looking couple! Remember, sometimes it cost money to make memories. Feeling like a princess is priceless. We all remember our school dances, especially if we went with someone special.

    I didn't have girls but a co-worker did, soon as prom was over we would go get dresses on clearence for 70 percent off sometimes.One time the exact dress my sons date paid 230 bucks for was marked down to 50 dollars !! She would buy for homecomming, winter formal and prom all for the price of one dress in the spring!Always had good luck at jc pennies,and macy's. Something to think about ;)

    We are very lucky here for thrift stores and this year's dress did come from one. Do you have a store called "Deb's" in a mall near you? They have sizes up to 24W and if you hit the after prom sales you can be shocked at some of the prices. One dress we bought cost $20 and another that we bought and altered was only $7.50. We have often bought a dress ahead of time because my daughter's tastes are pretty firm. If she likes it now, she will like it for the next dance.

    Who knows? If you keep your eyes open, you two might stumble on something fabulous before the next dance and be able to stretch your "going all out" money and still have left overs.
