Custom Party Dress

Kudos to all those parents of 8th grade girls that have spent the last 6 weeks looking for “The Dress”. The idea of finding the perfect dress by far outweighed the actual hunt experience. That infamous day is almost here and I have come to realize my calling. After 8 hours at the Mall of America and placing two different website orders we settled for a dress that would work, only to head to the fabric store the next week to start all over. We found some fabric and drafted a pattern to create a dress Maddy would feel confident and comfortable wearing. After talking with many of the girls and their parents, so many had the same experience and settled for a dress that was “okay”. The dresses available to these girls are too short, too tight, too skimpy and too much black. If the money and time were no issue, I would create a unique and individual dress for each and every girl in the 8th grade. Thank heavens prom is 3 years away!
