Prom Dress for my niece Maggie

Maggie's prom isn't until April so I have been a little proactive about extracting a plan from her.  I want to sew the dress without any marathon sessions.  We older folk like our sleep :)
She has asked for the knee length version and I think she's going to look amazing in this dress.  Great choice, Maggie!

  1. It is a gorgeous dress, reminds me of the movie "An Education" which is out now. Maybe you can watch it on the plane home!
