A night out at the Prom!

Here are a few photos from Flora's prom.
These are just are just two dresses that I made for the occasion....
This stunning red gown for Rachel, is made of Silk Dupion lined and trimmed with black. As you can see it is for her hour glass figure and flares out from the knee. It has a pleated detail around the bodice and a stunning halter neck to finish off the look. Rachel was lovely to work with, she knew exactly what she wanted. I think red was a great colour for her beautiful tanned skin!

Emma, had a very definite choice of dress. It had to be from' Dirty Dancing' fame. Emma loves to dance, so a double Crepe backed Satin with a silk Chiffon over skirt, pulled in at the waist with a Chiffon scarf and flower with a silver broach just finished it off. The choice of colour for Emma was perfect too.

I did not make Flora's dress, as she was very clever and thrifty. She found a stunning Black Lace little number. So, with a little bit of customising to the under bodice and neckline [which actually changed the original look] she was almost ready.We thought it needed a little bit of colour ... so I quickly made a statement clutch bag, from cerise pink Thai Silk, lined with black and trimmed with a huge black button to carry everything that one needs to these events.

  1. Caroline, those dresses are stunning...and Flora looked amazing.....I'm not surprised you had a tear, you must be so proud!!!! Lots of love Sarah x

  2. They all look amazing - they didn't do proms when my girls were at school which is a pity. Flora's LBD looks very good indeed. x

  3. Thank you ladies, you are both great supports and very encouraging to me! xx
