Cinderella Shall Go to The Ball...

I finished Naomi's prom dress today, with, I might add, almost three weeks to spare.
This is Simplicity 3878 only cut down to tutu length ~ the original pattern is for a full length ball gown ~ made in black satin with an overlay of red and black shot crystal organza, which, incidentally, was a #*&$ to sew with.
It needs a bit more "bling" adding to the bodice, but I'm waiting for some hot-fix Swarovski's I ordered to arrive. I also still need to make the matching fascinator. Yes, the girl who had me buy her a tiara over a year ago because "I'll wear it for prom" has decided she wants a red and black top hat fascinator instead.
No worries.
Guess what she'll be wearing on her head if she ever decides to get married...
Next sewing project is going to be something for me.

Wow....she'll be the belle of the ball in that. You were right it does look better with something added to the bodice for modesty sake! Lol. Well done mum x

Gorgeous! She will look amazing in the dress.

I only have boys and can't sew. Maybe I should start cross stitching their prom waistcoats now?

I liked the hat - now I love the dress - hope we will be seeing a picture of the model wearing it.
