A North Carolina teen’s mom helped her daughter get revenge after she was sent home on her last day of her senior year for a dress code violation.

According to WGHP, Violet Burkhart says teachers pulled her aside on the last day of her senior year at Central Davidson High School in Lexington, N.C. and measured the length of her dress.

Teachers found that her dress was half an inch too short, so they called her mother and said she had to go home to change.

“I literally looked back at the clock and I’m thinking, it’s 1:00 in the afternoon on her last day of her senior year. My daughter — it’s supposed to be one of her best days and she’s there crying,” said Amy Redwine, Violet’s mother.

Redwine isn’t going against the school’s dress code, but she explains if she thought the dress was inappropriate, she would have never allowed her daughter to wear it.

Redwine placed a smile on her daughter’s face on her graduation day by wearing the dress that got her daughter in trouble.

“If her dress is too short, then my dress is too short and I’m going to wear it in front of everybody and be proud just like she should have been able to on her last day,” said Redwine.
