" You are a good mom"

My conversation with Shelly 2 weeks ago.

Me : So are you going to church prom?

Shelly: Yep!

Me: What are you going to wear?

Shelly: Umm Ummm Ummm

Me : Did you forget about a dress?
Shelly: Kinda..
Me: do you want to go to the thrift store ?

Shelly: Yep!

Went to all the thrift stores in town found nothing.
Saturday Shell said why dont you make me a dress.

I just roll my eyes and said OK.

So Saturday we went to Joanne's she looked threw the fabric book and picked out a pattern she loved.

I looked at it and said this is a sun dress.

Shelly: but I love it!

Me: dont you want something more formal?

Shelly: It is a formal it goes to the floor.

Me: alright lets get fabric..

Shelly: Ohh I like this Yellow plane cotton fabric.

Me: Don't you want a silk or something more formal looking?

Shelly : No why would I want that?

Me: Ok

We went up to get the fabric cut and Shelly sighed O'My Gosh Mom this is it!!

Me what?
Shelly: **** look is this not the most beautiful fabric ever?*****
Me : Sure do you want this instead.

Shelly: Yes! Do you think my red hat will go with it?

Me:Yes Shell do you want this fabric instead?

Shelly: Yes!!!

Me Alright!!
Shelly: with a big smile and a quick peck to the cheek. "You are a good mom"
Me : (Smile and sigh) Thank you Shelly..

So this is a peek at the almost made dress with yards and yards of flowing material..

As I am creating it I am realizing that it it is going to be quite stunning once she adds the fun breakfast in tiffany's inspired red hat , red heals and red jewelry. I am excited to see it all put together.

I guess I should go sew the rest of the dress up! I will show you the finished product on Saturday when she is dressed up and ready to go..

You are a great mom and SO talented. If my Lorelai got in a bind like that she would be completely out of luck. I wasn't even capable of making a decent ghost costume out of a bedsheet when she was little!

Cherie said...

Looks like it is going to be so cute. I can't wait to see it finished.

What is church prom?
