Blast from the Past























I don't have many photos of things I made in the past but these are four of my daughter's prom (and other) gowns that I made. I had to cut out the photos of the dudes because she is now married. LOL! The blue and silver one was her Senior Prom in 1999. You know they played the Prince song right? Their colors were Silver and Midnight Blue. I had bought about three gorgeous gowns during the summer for her dances... but noooooooo.. it was the "tradition" for Mommy to make all the dresses! The Black and White one was Junior Prom and the Gold brocade was the guy's senior prom. The blue and silver one.. It is gold lame with a lace overlay.. all discount fabric meaning the dress COULD have been under $30..HOWEVER the trim around the top and bottom was hand beaded with bugle beads... try as I might.. it was the only one that really looked great... cost of 5 yards of trim? $120.00 worth of bling. The pink one was for homecoming one year (I think) . That might have been the last pink thing she wore. She is kind of an athletic, organic gardening archeologist digging in dirt and swampy marsh type sweetie. :o) Too bad I don't have any photos of my son in the "jams" I made for him when those were in style... remember those? He is probably happy I don't have any.... but hmmmm... maybe I do....
