My dress for the prom

My parents are moving and I have to bring back a lot of stuff I left at there house because my appartment is too small.Most of this stuff are medieval inspiration clothing I bought when I was a teen and a young adult.At the bottom of a huge container , I found the dress I was wearing for my prom when I was 17 years old.If you ask the question no I didn't made it .I wasn't sewing at this time of my life.

Recently my friend Gwenyver remind me a few years ago ,  we wish to wear our prom dress for halloween.My mom refuse and keep the dress in a safe place , her closet.I did not remind this story before she talk about it but it's totally the style of my mom.A 300$ dress should not be wear more then one time ,just in case I made some damage to it .When I talk to my mom recently, she said it was my dress so I could do what I want but it's clearly not the case.Now it's really mine .I do not fit in but who knows what the futur will looks like.

  1. I tried on my prom dress a couple of months ago and fit in it. Proof that my mom made too big to begin with because I'm a good 30 pounds heavier now than I was back then!
