Description

A friend of mine graduated this summer and needed a prom dress.

And what don’t you do for a friend!

She wanted something straight, with a boat neck, and a low back. And this is what she got!

She was happy (I cried), I was happy! She looked like a supermodel!

      I did alter a burda pattern actually.
      I used “5/2011 A-Line Dress #108B” as a base for the bodice, she’s so tiny that even the smallest size was too big so it had to be altered with a lot.
      The skirt I just fitted on her.

      Thanks btw! She was really happy which made me even happier! :D
