semi-formal all finished!

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)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

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. Emily

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

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. ;)

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. ;)

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.

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

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!
