This year I had 2 kids going to prom, #2 and #3. #2 had gone last year (You can check that out HERE) with one of his good friends.
We tried on LOTS of dresses… have you looked for a prom dress lately? It's really hard to find one that is not only age appropriate, and doesn't look like a Vegas show girl, fits correctly and doesn't show off all of a girl's parts. 🙂 We made the skirt, bought the lace top at Express and the tank top at Nordstrom's Rack. The skirt pattern Simplicity S0521 wasn't a hard pattern… but it had a very strange way to make the waistband, which made it harder than it should have been… Of course working with tulle was always a joy. 😉
These shoes were a FANTASTIC buy/find. They are Badgley Mischka's and retail for $247.00. We got them for $39. 🙂
At Ottawa High School it's pretty important HOW you make your entrance. Last year #2 made his grand entrance in his Uncle's Repo truck. 🙂 This year #3 entered in a Radio Flyer Wagon.
#2 brought his date in something a little more fancy than a Radio Flyer Wagon…
He arrived in a Jaguar.
