- A woman received her fairytale ending after getting her dream dress for prom
- After realising she was struggling to afford a dress, her partner made one for her
- This was the first dress he had ever sewn in his life
Addi Rust has always dreamed of her prom night and the stunning dress that she would wear. She soon realised, however, that dresses are extremely expensive and no fairy godmother would come to her rescue. Little did she know that her prom date and best friend was going to make her Cinderella story a reality.
According to FOX59, Addi found the dream dress early in the year but realised that she couldn't afford it. This led to her prom date, Parker Smith, thinking of ways to help her. Having never designed a dress before, he decided to give it a try. He sketched up a design for the dress all by himself and taught himself how to cut and sew, with his grandmother helping him.
Addi was allowed to see the dress come to life but still couldn't hold back the tears on the day of its reveal.
The pair took to Twitter to share the amazing moment. And having realised his amazing talent, Parker now says this won't be the last dress he makes. He is planning to study costume design and musical theatre in college and dreams of becoming a Broadway costume designer one day.
He has even landed a job with Footlite Musicals in Indianapolis. Talk about things falling into place.
