So, she jokingly said to Parker, "Why don't you just make my prom dress?"

Afterward, Parker actually thought that it was a great idea and he embarked on a quest to make his date's prom dress after all.

Even though he'd never used a sewing machine before, he was up for the challenge.

Parker even sketched out the dress himself and set out to make it completely from scratch.

Even though it took Parker months to complete, he taught himself how to make a dress with a little help from his grandma.

It's so amazing to see some positivity on social media as it can be such a toxic place for teens sometimes.

Even though this was Parker's first design and first dress he's made, he says it won't be his last.
