Becca asked Tessa, “Is there any chance you still have your sparkly white prom dress from high school?”
“It’s probably in a closet at my parents. Why?”
“Michael frequently mentions how you looked in that dress, and he’s carried the picture all these years.”
“Really? You must realize there’s no way it’ll fit.”
“But I’ll bet we could use the skirt fabric layers to make a new bodice, even with sleeves if you want, and add a different skirt. Michael would be thrilled.”
“Won’t it be too formal?”
“Not if I design it right,” she said, sketching her visualization.
Written in response to Charli Mills September 2, 2021, prompt at Carrot Ranch Literary: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story to the theme, “not everyone fits a prom dress.” You can take inspiration from Ellis Delaney’s song, the photo, or any spark of imagination. Who doesn’t fit and why? What is the tone? You can set the genre. Go where the prompt leads!
