Another year down for Prom Project. I believe there were around 250 dresses, shoes, jewelry and all things for the prom distributed at not cost that day.
This is the view from my sewing machine. I like to call it PASH (Prom Alteration Sewing Hospitals) alterations. Similar to the MASH hospitals of the wars, we set up and do some pretty fast, yet nice alterations. Of course there are some things we just could not do, even with our conference of expert seamstresses. The time just was not there.
Not unlike a Tsunami the girls came at us, wave upon wave. Sometimes we were 3 deep with needs that ranged from minor hook and eye additions to hemming on layers of lining, crinoline and silk.
What a great day and wonderful time of volunteering. The girls and mothers smiles and pride of having a dress that is custom fit was our reward.
