Cute Story Alert! High School Student Designs his Date’s Prom Dress

Check out this super sweet story in yesterday’s Chicago Sun-Times.  Stevenson, Illinois  high school student Tyler Pecora designed a pretty sky-blue dress for his girlfriend Lauren Comitor to wear to his senior prom. Tyler recruited his friend, fashion student Courtney Hart, to help him work out the kinks in his design and stitch the gown. The cutest touch? The duo has embroidered Tyler’s initials in the satin panel that will cover Lauren’s heart. Awwww!

    How very sweet to have thought enough about your prom date to want to design a dresss for her, and go through the process. He’s truly creating another prom memory to add to both their lives.

    Sweet story. Lovely dress style. Too bad the photo shoot was messed up. Why is the dress sitting twisted on the dress form. Makes the whole thing look crooked, like maybe she (the dressform) has one big boob right out there for ya.
