Maverick Francisco Oyao had no experience in creating a dress, let alone a ball gown.

But for this Bachelor of Culture and Arts Education student, anything is possible if you put your heart and soul into it.

Oyao shared on Facebook how he watched videos on Youtube and search on Google the designs for ball dresses. He particularly found inspiration in the gowns created by known fashion designer Michael Cinco.

That’s when he came up with a sketch of the gown that he’d like to create.

Oyao posted photos of the progress of the gown on his Facebook account. His mother also helped him to get it all done.

Even when there was a time that he think he couldn’t finish it in time, he continued and completed it.

Finally, her sister wore the stunning blue gown during their Junior-Senior (JS) prom on Feb. 14.

“I did not expect na magagawa ko to on time. I even doubted my self kung magagawa ko ba ‘to o hinde kasi naman diba iba ang concept sa ginagawa na. But God is really good. Di niya ako pinabayaan. At may isa na namang bunsong kapatid ang napasaya ni kuya,” Oyao wrote on the caption of his post.

Oyao shared that he had the urge to do it since they couldn’t afford to rent one.

Although his sister didn’t win the “Best Dress” award, Oyao said it was the best dress for him since it’s his sister that is wearing it.

Netizens praised Oyao for being a supportive and loving brother.

As of this writing, netizens have shared his post over 67,000 times on Facebook.
