After pondering all night about it I knew the sale was for the next day also and that it was half price day so went back at 7:00 AM and lo and behold the dress was still there. And who do you think I saw there but my dear friend Sharon, ready to buy me the dress because she knew I loved it so! That is the way she is, always trying to please me. I am so blessed to have her as a friend.
Please pray for Sharon, she has been diagnosed with cancer. I am praying for a miracle.
She held it up for me so I could get a couple of shots of it (the day before) so I could post about it.
I know, amazing! S-C-O-R-E!!
What is really amazing is this dress is handmade by the owners mother who is now deceased and she let this beauty be sold!! She told me she wore it to our local May Fete in 1959 which is a tradition of the High School each May for graduation. She was a Junior. At May Fete, the girls dress in their beautiful finery and wrap a maypole and walk across the curved bridge over the lake. It is beautiful. I did it my Junior year also.
But well, when I got it home to put on my dress form Miss Olivia, she was too big to wear this beauty so for now I just have her hung on a hanger, but you can bet I will find a form that fits the dress.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my prize, see you soon. Will be linking with Pink Saturday and Show and Tell Friday.
