Who says a “real” man can’t sew?

A parent’s love often is limitless. And like many parents, there isn’t much David Herron of Marshfield won’t do for his children. When his youngest daughter, Mariah, 17, became frustrated trying to find an affordable prom dress made out of camouflage fabric, she asked him if he would make her dress.

And two months later, Mariah was outfitted in her winter white camo colored prom dress ready to attend the Marshfield High School Junior Prom with her date and friends.

“I jokingly asked my dad if he could make me a prom dress. When he said yes, I was surprised,” Herron said. The greater surprise was that the dress he made was really nice, she said.

In the military, David Herron learned to sew his stripes and hem his uniforms.

“I’m pretty good with straight seams and about two years ago, my wife gave me a sewing machine. I’ve made some quilts and pillows, but this dress was something else,” he said.
