MARSHFIELD, Wis. - Many girls dream about special prom dresses, but one Wisconsin teen has a dress no one can match.
Her father made it for her.
Seventeen-year-old Mariah Herron, of Marshfield, says she wanted a prom dress made out of camouflage fabric because it would fit her personality. She hunts and works on construction projects.
But she had trouble finding a camouflage dress that was affordable.
That's when her father, David Herron, stepped in. He learned to sew in the military.
He tells News-Herald Media that he made some pillows and quilts after his wife gave him a sewing machine, but a dress was a whole new challenge.
The winter white camo-colored dress he made was a success, though. Herron says his daughter now wants him to make her wedding dress.
