The Big Night

Here is the finished garment on prom night. My son was the only boy not wearing a tie - he certainly enjoys being unique. All the kids were calling him John Travolta and he humored them with a quick Saturday Night Fever pose or two. His date's Chanel-inspired dress was made by her grandmother. I wish I had taken some close-ups of the gorgeous beaded and sequined lace used in the skirt. I like the way the lace with white underskirt goes so well with the pattern of the shirt fabric. That's it for this project. On to my graduation dress!

Wow Gigi, that's a great looking couple. And, of course, their outfits look fab!! I think your son's date looks a bit like you in the picture.

What a gorgeous couple Gigi! And such lovely coordinated outfits. I like your son with his longer hair -- such a cutie! My son would love that shirt too ... he tends to go his own way a lot like yours. ;-)
