A Special Dress For a Special Day

Nothing we saw in the stores spoke to us.  My daughter wanted something special for her graduation from middle school, and after another unsuccessful shopping trip she asked if I would just make her a dress.  We settled on a  knee length bias cut dress, reminiscent of the 1930’s.  I had the perfect piece of fabric – a wonderful crinkle rayon in a lovely shade of green backed with pink, giving it an iridescent quality. I had picked it up a few years ago on a fabric buying trip to New York, and had been saving it for the right project. grad. dress bits 001 Embellished with a single vintage button and a vintage millinery flower trim, I think the dress turned out  elegant and unique – just like the young lady it was made for. 8th grade graduation 028 2 crop I will treasure the compliment of having her prefer one of my creations to something mass-produced.  What a lucky mom I am!
