Today I completed my prom dress and I am SO EXCITED to wear it!! It actually looks nicer than I thought it would be. I attached the lining completely today, and I also connect the top to the bottom. Today I also learned how make a cover button. But that wasn’t all, I took in my dress. I hope I don’t gain any weight!! It fits perfectly and it looks perfectly on me. I absolutely LOOOOOVE it! I can not wait to go to prom. This has been such a great journey.

I had so much fun at prom last night. Everyone kept saying how proud they were of me and that I had the best looking blazer they seen. A lot of people were very shocked that I made it. In a way I was mad because they didn’t have a best dressed award. But if they did I think I would’ve won because I turned a lot of heads.
This past week I probably was at the sewing studio for about 25 hours. I am so exhausted. But I had to do what I had to do because I had to get my tuxedo ready for prom. I just need some sleep because I’ve been up for two long.
Today I finished the pants. I learned how to add a waste band to the pants. That was a fun part because I never knew how people do stuff like that. Then i hemed the bottom of the pants. After that I tried the pants on and the pants came out perfect. Just how I wanted them to fit. They look so good on me and I am so proud. I can’t wait until prom.
Today I sewed the pants together. I sewed the sides together. And I put a zipper on them. I think the zipper was the hardest part. Because i kept sewing on the zipper. And the thread wasn’t allowing me to zip the pants up because there was thread on them. I think I did the zipper about 4 times. It’s okay because it’s all a learning process.
Today at my class I started to make my dress pants. I also went back to cut all the threads off my jacket. Because i always forget to do that when I get done sewing. I cut out the pants all i have to do is sew it all together. I am tempted to see how they are going to come out.
Today at my class I got to finish the blazer. I am so happy because I didn’t think I was capable of making something so nice. Well I fooled myself because the blazer came out so nice. I cant wait until prom to wear it because I want to see how I look in it.
Today i made the facing of my jacket. I also made pockets for my jacket. This wasn’t that bad. I actually did a good job making the pockets. I was surprise because it looked so complicated. Next class I will be sewing everything together.
Today I was making the linens for my jacket. I had to make a liner for the inside of the jacket and I had to make a liner for the sleeves of the jacket. Then i had to sew the linens together. Than i had to press the seems open. This was the easy part of making my blazer.
