Prom sewing Daughter Beckys dress

This year  at least Ididn't have to make any dresses from scratch, just alterations.
This is my Daughters dress she bought it in England last year, because she wanted something no one else would have. The theme for prom this year is Masquerade so she made a really cool mask to go with this dress and one for her date ( I will show pictures) The front of the dress is encrusted with gem stones I will take some more close up pictures next week at prom.

For modesty reasons she didn't want it strapless . so the hem was way too long so It was great that we could use the fabric and make wide strap /sleeve with it. Can't wait till the 22nd to see it all come together shoes, makeup hair etc.

This was the front before alterations It's a deeper red in real life.
