|The firsts dress|
The first dress I made with the pattern was with this beautiful faux silk dupioni (ok, it was polyester) that I found on clearance at Joanns.

Then there was the prom dress. During the winter of her senior year, we saw some crazy outrageous shoes and joked that she should get those for prom. Then when the prom approached, she said she was serious, she wanted those shoes. By that time they were long gone from the store. Luckily we found them online and built a dress around them.
I decided to make a muslin to make sure my idea would work so I got an old border print sheet that had belonged to her grandmother.

Then I got satin that matched the shoes, and made my favorite version of the dress (thus-far...). Check out the shoes!
