belle of the ball

With everything else going on in my life, I must confess to still wanting to indulge my children, especially when they ask me to sew for them. Princess #1 shocked me by requesting a dress for her Junior Prom. I confess to a dislike for this color, but she had it locked in her mind. "I want to look like Belle Mom."

A closeup of this golden confection better shows the rhinestone details on the straps and under the empire waist. This dress could not have been simpler really, and it only took about four hours. Fitting would have been more efficient, however, had she remembered to bring her bra... and shoes (ahem).

As it turned out, she loved it, and that's all that counts. I only wish I'd been there to iron it for her.

Sounds - and looks - like a wondeful girl! I this is what mothers do. I understand completely about the ironing. `None of my girls knows how , or why, to use an iron.
