OMG No
Thing is she will only wear it once too

I refused to do it for my daughter when it was her prom

A. could not afford to.
B.Would deffo only wear it once

Ended up buying one for £40. Lovley dress reduced from £75
Shoes £17.99.
Bag borrowed as it was the only one she could find to go with the dress

I did pay for her hair to be done nicley though £30.00.


And do you know some of her friends payed hundreds for their outfits and they didn't look half as good as her

As for the transport 10 of them together hired a stretch limo and paid £20.00 each :P took them there, then took them all home

My niece went into the west end to buy a dress with my sister, they spent the day playing dress up, but she kept saying she wanted me to make it for her.

So here I am in Florida making a prom dress for the apple of my eye who's in London, with all the wrong measurements. I finally made it a size smaller than I take, miraculously it fitted her perfectly.

What a very big compliment it was for me.
BTW I made her christening gown and had embroidered a little message into the lining. The little bugger only looked for one in her prom dress. Did she find one? Ofcourse she did
