SYOSSET - Threads were flying and sewing machines were whirring today at Nassau BOCES Long Island High School as students in the fashion design technology program prepared for an upcoming fashion show.

The students are given materials to work with, but it's up to them to design and assemble their own dresses and other pieces.

"Making a dress is like a puzzle," says student Miranda Faria. "You have to make sure everything is in the right grain, that everything is straight."

The students' fashion show is being held on Friday and it's open to the public.
