My daughter wants a prom dress

We never had Prom events to end one’s compulsory years of education in my day but it does seem to be catching on in the UK influenced one assumes by the popularity of these events in America as reflected in so many films.

As my wife used to be a couture dressmaker and is still happy to make clothes for herself and her daughters (well, the 15 year old anyway, the 17 year old hates dresses), I am not facing a huge bill to get the right clobber for the forthcoming celebration.

With a little help from Google Images, they have found a dress to inspire the eventual design my wife will come up with.  (Photo on the right linked to the site she found it on where some other blogger announces that this is going to be “her dress” – not literally you understand.)
