The Prom Dress!

Jess is home from Uni now and her first job is to make Katy's prom dress. Prom is July 29th (I think) and Katy chose a vintage 1950s pattern that we found in a charity shop. Jess made a toille from curtain lining and last week we went and bought the fabric proper! We went to Borovicks in Berwick Street (London) which is where I got the fabric for my wedding dress. Needless to say it took Katy aaaages to choose which one she wanted! Finally we came away with a shot silk, lining etc. No doubt this will be a lengthy process so I shall show you the pics in stages. First shots are of choosing the fabric and cutting and stitching the lining...
