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. :roll: Did she find one? Ofcourse she did ;)
