Thought y'all might like to see the latest.  Here's my girl in her formal
dress for the dance at school.

Omigosh!  Sharon she's lovely, I love the color of that dress.  Better
start laying in supplies for the "Big Day".  Wow, how the time
flies...

Ah, Sharon, she and the dress are lovely.  How old is your daughter?
As the mother of two boys, I'll never get to sew such loveliness.
*sniff*    :-)

nice job and great color!

Re: the spring formal
Sharon, she is indeed. I remember that exact day when each of my girls'
suddenly looked grown up to. It's a startling moment, isn't it?

She's just lovely, I hope she has (had?) a grand time at the dance!

Sharon,

What a beautiful girl!  Love the dress, and I'll bet it was great for
dancing.

Ah... prom season.  For my first prom, my date was so
(uncharacteristically) nervous he broke out in hives.  Poor thing looked
like he'd been attacked by yellow jackets.  We had a great time anyway.

Your daughter looks so very pretty in her lovely frock.  Way to go
Sharon :)

Re: the spring formal
Sharon, I agree with everyone that she looks darling and the dress is
beautiful.  Best of all, she looks proud, which says a  lot about your
relationship with her (not to mention your sewing skills).


Re: the spring formal
Thanks everyone!!  She really was tickled with the dress.

Lisa, she's 14.  That really fun age when we don't know if we will get the
queen (as in the pictures) or if we will get the urchin from one day to the
next.  She loves to go out and romp with the dog and the neighbor's horses.
Not pushing her to grow up at all.  She can take her time with that.  ;)

Karen, she had a great time, thanks for asking!  She said she didn't dance
with any of the guys; they were all the "same goobers they are every other
day.  Why bother?"  LOL  Instead she and a group of her really good
girlfriends all danced together.

She  told me too that the part that made it all a lot of fun was the
normally snooty kids.  She said (every school has these kids don't they??)
that the kids who normally are snooty to everyone, or won't give her the
time of day normally, even told her "Your dress is AWE-some!!!"  lol  Then
she told me too that the girl who is the snootiest normally, had on a dress
"that just didn't fit her well.....the dress was wearing her instead of her
wearing the dress.   But she does have some taste, because she was one of
the first to compliment my dress."  heh heh  That's my girl!!!

Thanks again everyone.  I had to share those pictures with you guys.  I
really was pretty proud of the dress, and VERY proud of the girl.  :)

As well she should be.  The dress complimented the girl, it
is a great combination.  The dress didn't take center stage,
but was fabulous.  Be proud of it and the DD.

Re: the spring formal
Sounds like you have two daughters to be proud of.

Re: the spring formal
Such a beautiful young lady and a perfect dress for the occasion.  Such a
gorgeous combination!
Did you cry after she left as I did when each of my 3 went to her first
prom, also wearing Mother-made gowns.

Yep.  About half the drive home after I dropped her off.  *sigh*

Thanks Emily.  :)

Re: the spring formal
It isn't only the DD moms who get teary eyed.
I have two sons ... and I cried a little
while pinning on the boutonniere. Passages
are sometimes bittersweet, eh?

As someone who was forcibly held back with the strongest attempts to
prevent her growing up (my children had more freedom at age 9 than I had
at age 16) and becoming an independent person and who is genuinely glad
to see her children becoming people in their own right, I never really
have understood why moms cry over these things.

Re: the spring formal
Well, for me it was mainly tears of joy ....
that our boys had grown up so nicely and were
such fine young men ... and a little bit of
astonishment that they were aging and I
wasn't!! ;)
OTOH, I was not one to make a mountain out of
a mole hill, or sob over each little birthday
and school event. Oh puh-lease!

Re: the spring formal
I'm with you, Pat! When my middle daughter was off to college, a dear
friend invited me over for a party for all her friends with kids away at
school. I was floored by all the long faces! Maybe it's because I did my
35 years of child-rearing, but I was thrilled to bits that my girls were
grown up, had done well enough in high school to get scholarships to the
colleges of their choice, and that they are all the kind of women that I
want as a friend. And now my oldest daughter has proven to be a
wonderful mother, too. If that's not worth a tear or two of joy, I don't
know what is!

Oh.  That makes sense.  And generally, I'm not the type of cry from joy,
so that explains why I never do that.
