His sister couldn't afford a dress for homecoming so he made her one
March 08, 2020
The love between siblings may not always be apparent, but it definitely exists. It may not show up in the obvious of ways, like hugging or other affectionate gestures, but the love between a brother and a sister lasts a lifetime. For an example of just how much siblings can care about each other, look no further than Maverick Francisco Oyao and his sister, Lu. After finding out his parents couldn't afford to buy their daughter a dress to her school's winter formal, he decided to make her one himself. And you won't believe how stunningly beautiful it is!
Maverick, whose family comes from the Philippines, designed and made his sister's dress completely by himself. Here's the first sketch.
Considering his family couldn't afford to buy his sister a dress, he decided to make her one that would turn everyone's head at the dance.
He felt that if that was the only thing keeping her from going to the winter formal, he had to do something about it. He even painted the corset by hand!
Maverick didn't even have to pay for all the fabrics he used; they were given to him by friends of the family.
Even the stones and flowers used to decorate the dress were gifts.
Can you believe that Maverick did all this by hand?
Here the dress is just missing its finishing touches.
With so many details, it's hard to believe someone did this all by hand!
The dress was finished just in time for the winter formal, which was held on Valentine's day. Lu couldn't believe how beautiful the dress turned out!
There's no doubt that Lu turned the most heads at the dance. She looks stunning in that dress!
And it took only a week and a half for Maverick to finish the dress.
Lu and Maverick are now closer than ever, and their parents will forever be grateful for what Maverick did for his sister. It's like a modern day version of the Cinderella story... only Lu's fairy godmother was actually her brother, who cared about her happiness so much that he made her a dress.
