Katie has started on her prom dress. This is the dress she is going for, except the dress will actually go over both shoulders and have sleeves. The skirt overlay will be sheer and the embellishment will be made with buttons.
The picture of the fabric sadly does not do it justice. It is a very yellow yellow, a bright vibrant yellow. The sheer overlay is also washed out; it's more golden than the picture shows.
Of course I will post pictures as she works on the dress. She has the lining of the dress sewn together--now we fit it to her and make adjustments. She is sewing it, but I am hovering and offering advice. So far she hasn't thrown the scissors at me. I guess that means we are having a good time.
