Prom 2006

Good Saturday...Yesterday was a rousing success for our first First Friday. There were at least 40 participating blogs. You can go Here to view the full list.

Tonight was the big prom, so now I can show you the dresses that I was commissioned to make...I couldn't show the pictures before they showed up in the dresses...Secretive teenage society...no one can see the dress ahead of time.

One reason for having a dress made......last weekend at another local Prom, six girls turned up with the same dress, in the same color...LOL!


They all bought them on the internet, trying to outdo each other...LOL! As I hear it, they almost came to blows over it....teenage angst! *Sigh* Am I glad I passed that years ago....I've got
way bigger fish to fry. PS...in most cases I used double sided Hollywood tape in strategic spots to keep "the girls" from getting away! That's part of the service of being a seamstress! And as one of my girlfriends put it. "It also keeps the boys from getting fresh!"




























































I must add one caveat, in case some of these raise an eyebrow...The girls brought the pictures and material...and even a parent...I only made what THEY wanted...none of these were my idea, just my talent at recreating a
picture! I haven't gotten the studio pictures of the costumes I did this year. They will be taken as group shots in the coming weeks, so I'll put some up as soon as I get them!

    The dresses and the wearers are beautiful, Bonnie. You are very talented. I wish we had "the prom concept" over here in the UK (as I have a beautiful 15 year old daughter. And a beautiful 10 year old also!)

    The tape...LOL...good thinking!

    I don't see much difference in the templete? Are the boxes around the subjects like your reviews new?

    Wow!

    Wow!

    If I were ever to wear a dress, I'd want you to design it for me.

    WOW!! I didn't know you were so multi talented. What else do you do? I had no idea, I am shocked and amazed, I can't sew anything, my sister can, but I am all thumbs when it comes to sewing.

    I like the coppery one. Not that I remotely have the figure that could wear that. Oh, shoot, no! :)

    I hear you Mir. I don't think my THIGH would fit one of those dresses. But they are beautiful. Great work Bonnie. I went to a private school that didn't allow dancing, so we had Senior Prom instead. We still got formals, but the dress code was so strict, we all had a tough time finding dresses appropriate. My mom made mine, but it was nothing like these fantastic dresses. That's quite a talent, I have trouble doing more than simple mending. I can't wait to see the costumes. What a fun job!
