Tale of A Little Black Dress

My DGD the bassoon player was one of 110 young Amercian musicians
selected for the first National Youth Orchestra tour:

We learned about two weeks before she left that she needed a "dressy
dress, at least knee length, with sleeves, NOT strapless, modest,
washable, etc." She described the dress she wanted, we shopped for
fabric, and after a couple of fittings, I delivered the dress (and a
purse made of the same lace) two days before they left for New York
and points east (Moscow, St. Petersburg, and London).
And, here she is, wearing the dress to an opera in St. Petersburg,
Russia:

The group was taken to see Tosca at the Mariinsky II Theater, after
which they met several cast members. They performed a concert there
to a sold out house the following night. It was an amazing
opportunity for all the kids.

Elegant but suited to her youth. And don't we all agree: There's nothing like bespoke clothing. ;-) The shoes, too - elegant but not too flimsy. (And tell her to strangle the friend who took the two pics that caught her just that very second when her feet were pigeon-toed.) Thanks for the story and pics.
Ah, nothing like the backstage area in a theatre, and meeting the cast, especially if you're of nearly the same profession. In my singing days, I'd have loved to meet Elisabeth Schwarzkopf but that vanity is gone now. Anyway, I wish her a lot more success of that kind in her life. I don't know if you all wish her to earn her bread with that, so I guess I'd rather not wish her too much success. ;-) We all wish our children happy and successful, so I quote from 'A Mother's Prayer' from Tina Fey here:
'Lead her away from Acting but not all the way to Finance.
Something where she can make her own hours but still feel intellectually fulfilled and get outside sometimes.
And not have to wear high heels.
And what would that be, Lord? Architecture? Midwifery? Golf course design? I'm asking You because if I knew, I'd be doing it, Youdammit.'
Enough, you both did very well! Have a great weekend.
U.

It looks fabulous Beverly. It's so nice to see a good dress well fitted most and flattering. Round of applause from over here.
