For several years I sewed graduation and prom dresses. However, DD has learned to sew her own clothing so I don't bother with it.
Happy Stitching!

I made a few this year, my pics aren't ready yet, though. My favorite this year was a copy of a dress that Diane Kruger wore in Troy (she was Helen). The dress from the movie:

We did it in lightweight black crushed velvet with gold rope along the neckline. It turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. She loved it.
