Oh wow...another rockin' pose!
This was right before my high schools Halloween dance my junior year.
I thought a 70's theme would be fun, but after trying on a million costumes at costume shops around the Salt Lake valley, I was about to give up, unil my mom offered to sew my costume.
We found the pattern & psychedelic fabric at Hancock's and within a few days, my groovy dress was done!
It was funky, short, and I thought it was sexy (not too sexy though- remember, my mom made it for me and I was 17)!
Naturally, I asked a boy from my church who I had the hugest crush on.
He was as tall as I was without those go go boots on (about 5'7", and when I picked him up for our date, I towered a good 4" above him.
Still, we danced and had a blast!
This was my sophomore year homecoming dress.
It was gold and the fabric draped perfectly! My mom even made me a beautiful purple/gold iridescent shawl to wear with it.
Note the black flat sandals...another date with a short guy!
So there you have it! A small sampling of my mom's seamstress skills!
Do you have pictures of dresses from the past?
If so, post them! I'd love to see some pictures!
