For many high school girls, one
highlight of prom is finding a dress and showing it off.
One Marshfield High School junior got
her dream dress with some very special help—from her father.
Mariah Herron has been dreaming about
her prom dress for years.
But she knew finding it would be a
"We started looking online
because ever since I was a kid we wanted a camouflage dress," Mariah
Herron told Newsline 9.
But hours of internet searches came up
"We really didn't want to pay $500
or $600 for a dress that I was going to where once for like 4 hours, and not
even a day," Herron said.
That's when Mariah and her father David
had a new idea—sew it themselves.
"We spent about 2 hours in the
fabric store walking around," said Mariah.
"A couple of the ladies
recommended that if this was my first project it wouldn't be a very good one to
start with because it would be very hard," added David.
But David says he was up for the
challenge. With sewing skills learned in the Army, he dedicated himself to
helping his daughter.
"It was actually more shocking
that he said yes to make it," said Mariah.
After almost two months of work the
dress was complete.
"My table was just covered with
layer after layer of different patterns," said David.
When it was all said and done, David
had fulfilled one of his daughter's lifelong dreams.
"It's more inspiring to see a man
do it because even when you see stuff it's like oh a woman's the seamstress, a
woman does the sewing in the household, but it's different to say oh yeah my
dad made that my dad does the sewing in the family," concluded Mariah.
When it came time for prom, Mariah
says the dress was exactly how she imagined it.
