A Dress for Carly

Bradley Mattes   |   April 19, 2017

It’s that time of year again when young girls are shopping for prom dresses.  Carly Amundson has Down syndrome, but that’s not why she couldn’t find a prom dress.  She’s so tiny, nothing would fit.  So her fellow students in sewing class at Century High School in Bismarck, North Dakota decided to take matters into their own hands.  They took Carly shopping for dress fabric and a pattern.  Then they spent weeks in class sewing Carly’s new sparkly red prom dress — and she was on cloud nine.  What’s even more important is her kind students will never forget making the dress for her.  And hopefully, if they or someone they know is faced with a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome, they will remember Carly and her dress and make an enthusiastic choice for life.
