Dearest Sister sent this photo to me today. It is the first version of the formal.
This is Sister V ready for 'Prom in Texas' (according to the note on the back of the photo). She wore the formal off the shoulder and had room for an additional rosette in the center front of the neckline. And, she accessorized with a tulle wrap, instead of a parasol.
The more I think about it, it kind of makes sense to re-cut the dress. At least it got lots of use. Consider all the prom and bride's maid dresses in the world that just get one wearing. This dress was worn 'regularly' for 40 years. And I think it has another Halloween or two in it, yet!
Announcement! I am excited that DS's blog hi-jacker has graciously offered to guest blog for me on Saturday. She is a crafty girl with lots of good ideas, so I can't wait to see what she has to share! I will not be loafing, though. I am working on our super secret sister project (reveal date - TBA!)
