Got the dress hemmed today.  ;)  Nothing like coming in just under the wire
(the dance is tonight.)  She's getting very grown up on us.  *sigh*  But I
am so proud of that self confidence of hers!!  She didn't have a date,
because she won't "go out with" just anyone.  She has standards and she
sticks to them. But she wanted to go to the dance. So off she went chin up,
shoulders back full steam ahead.  ;)  I was so very proud!  She will have a
marvelous time with all her friends.  (and look pretty cute too.  lol)

OMG!  Sharon she looks wonderful and so proud to be wearing
Mom's creation.  Nice job, even if you did slide in feet
first!

LOL  Thanks, Beverly.  She really did look great, if I say so myself.  And
she's so much fun to sew for. When she got home from school, the dress was
still on the dressform.  She was looking it over and her eyes had that "is
the cuddly puppy really for me????" look to them.  lol  She's so
appreciative it really is a joy to sew for her.  ;)

Gorgeous daughter, I have one of the tall ones, too.  The dress is beautiful
as well.  I went to my senior prom alone, and had a wonderful time, too.

Thank you, Emily.

She had a really good time. I could tell because she was talking a mile a
minute when she got home. lol  And Bouncy!!!  Always two good indicators
that she's had a marvelous time.  ;)

Oh, that's lovely!  :)  I bet she had plenty that wanted to take her,
and more after this!  But she's very wise for her years and will keep
her cool, I'm sure.

Thanks, Kate.  ;)  She said there were "total strangers" that asked her to
dance.  lol (and she did dance with a few of them!!) I'm hoping she keeps
her cool for a few more years...like 20 more or so. LOL

Re: semi-formal all finished!

She's lovely.  She looks so much like my daughter that I did a double-
take.  (mine's an RN, 32 now)

Thank you, Teri.  

Isn't that funny?  Maybe we're related somewhere along the line.  She looks
a whole lot like me when I was that age.  (well except for the towering
over me part.  lol)  And I am almost a photocopy of my grandmother (and my
dad.  Dad has a masculine version of the face, which he passed on to my
son.)  Although, I am about 6" taller than my grandmother was. So maybe
that's it??  We pass the face down and add 6" in height???  lol

Just beautiful, Sharon!  The fabric is perfect for the pattern, and the
dress looks sooooooooo good on her.

Thank you so much!  She saw that pattern and that was it for her. ;)  And
would you believe there was Just enough of that fabric left at Hancock's?
I think I had **maybe** 1/4 yard left over when I was done.  This is the
Hancock's that's closing by us too.  So we knew there would be no finding
more.  *sigh*  We just lucked out right along huh?  ;)

Thanks again.

Sharon, it's almost heartbreaking to see Anna so grown up. She's lovely,
and the dress is, as well. I love that it's so different from the
run-of-the-mill teenager dressy dress.

Thanks, Karen.  It is hard to believe somedays she's that grown.  I was
really pleased with her choice of dress too.  Every day clothes she
picks....well ok, good example...  She bought herself, with her own money,
a pair of pink tennis shoes that look like the Converse Chuck Taylor
hightops.  These are the wal-mart kind and bright pink.  Then she took her
sharpie markers to them.  They are now "one of a kind, hand decorated."
And she wears them with Everything.  She definitely has her own sense of
style!!!  lol  So far though, she's gone with really classy and classic
type styles when she has to pick a formal.  A time and a place I guess. ;)

Sharon, children "learn what they live", and you've been her example of
how to do so many things. THAT's the reason she's such a great kid!
