Happy Summer

I just got back from a wonderful 7-day cruise to the eautiful Bahamas!  As usual, I decided on my dress for the Captain's dinner the week before the cruise.  I choose Vogue 2847.  The fabric I used came from http://www.fabric.com/, it's one of $1.95 pieces!  I loved the way the dress turned out, I did a FBA on a size 14, should have used a size 12, but I purchased this pattern long before I knew how to do a FBA.  So I had to take it in at the sides in the bodice and in the dress itself!  I got lots of compliments and had fun wearing it. 
Here's the pics upon completion.
Here I am on the cruise!   I also made one other prom gown, here is the pic of the dress the girl wanted.
I used Butterick 4731 for the gown base.  I redrafted the bottom of 4731 and created a one shoulder bodice in Wildginger.  Fabrics (sparkle netting and their Prom line) from JoAnns and the trim came from Walmart.  Here's my version...
