oh how awful, I teach all seniors and their prom is next weekend, most of them have had their dresses for about a month now. I hope she is able to find something this weekend as a back up.

    If I were your little sister I would buy a dress as back up. Find out the stores return police, keep the tags on the dress and return it if the seamstress does come through with the dress.

    I'm a bit of an amateur seamstress and I would never start a dress this late.

    I hope everything works out for your sister, I know how important prom is... every girl wants the perfect dress... just like when you get married.

      Well ladies prom is in 2 1/2 hours and the dress isn't done. My mom hasn't heard from the seamstress all day. When she did talk to her my mom said 2:30 and she said it wouldn't be done. So my mom and I went to Macy's and bought my sister a new dress. Its a beautiful replacement. I'll be sure to post some pics later. But for now I need to find some way to calm down because I am furious. Thanks for all of the support though it really helped me.

          she looks beautiful, and I like the new dress. As a high school teacher can I praise you and your mom for finding a dress that wasn't super short or that showed off all the goods...I cannot tell you how many times the kids come back from dances with pictures and I am shocked that their parents let them out of the house with the lack of clothing.
          She and her date look really cute together-it looks like they were excited to go to prom together.

            Thank you. My mom raised my sisters and I to be ladies and to dress like one. There was no way my little sister was going to the prom with every thing hanging out, that is so tasteless. I can imagine some of the dresses and outfits you have seen because I've seen some too. Some of the dresses I saw my mom would have killed me if I would have even looked at them for prom. These young ladies today need to be taught that less is more. But thank you again!

            I am a pretty bold teacher and tell my girls they need to dress better, in fact I tell them to leave something to the imagination and now they will comment to me if I haven't said anything about another girl in class, they always say, well aren't you going to say something to so and so, her dress is short today.
            Some days they come in and say, look I remembered to put a cami under my top today...its pretty funny.
            I am glad your sister had fun and she was able to get a dress that worked.
