Puyallup, Washin...






My daughter saw a dress in a magazine that she wanted for her Graduation Formal from Jr. High. Of course I thought “I can make that!” So off to the fabric store we went where we found a pattern similar to the dress in the magazine (Butterick B5457 view B). She then wandered the store finding fabrics in colors that appealed to her.

    Wow, what a transformation! I saw this pattern, but thought that the Butterick model’s version was too frumpy, but this is fantastic. I love the combination of colours. Your daughter will be the Belle of the Ball I’m sure. Great work!

    I bought this pattern with out paying attention. I thought I put it back but umm I have it. (And yes it’s on the receipt) ;) I guess it was meant to be. So, it will be a the makings real soon. O yeah, I’m sorry for rambling…Your dress and the colors are phenominal (?)

    super cute, and age-approprate, which is so hard to find for girls like 13/14, at least i find that . i bet every other girl will be jealous that she has a) a custom made dress and b) a mother who made it for her!
