I miss this dress :(

Here is my DD with her BF (jack) OK its not Jack it's not Leonardo DeCaprio its Daniel haha.

Well prom was Saturday and here it is Thursday and I actually miss that darn dress after all the tears ,fret and worry to get it done I can't believe I am saying that. DD made it home with no rips or stains. I was shocked I was sure I would have repairs the only thing I can find is one missing black bead on the drape.

She had a blast and she loves to dance and her BF isn't a big dancer so she was worried but he danced every dance with her and had fun doing it. Plus he was such a good sport about the "Titanic theme" he got tux similar to what Jack wore in the dinner scene except no tails he didn't want tails nor did DD. They looked so gorgeous together.

All in all everything went smooth a few Limo issues I guess the limo company was sold and this ride was this companies last job so the owner bumped their Limo from a 6 passenger to a 14 passenger at no extra cost. All of the employees had quit so there was no driver available and the owner had to do it and he was not happy. I guess it was he and his wifes anniversary. He kept complianing which kind of bumped the kids out a bit but we paid for 4 hours and they knew they could have the car for four hours rather he liked it or not.

Plus they got the big limo and there were only four of them in it. Funny thing we got them all loaded up and the driver tried to start the car and it was out of Gas so My husband had to get our lawn mower gas just to get them going the driver went nuts we parents tried to calm him down and told him not to worry stuff happens. I wanted him to drive safe. He got them every where safely and they had a blast.

The four promies

I still need to do a detailed write up about this dress if not here somnewhere to record all I learned. I just needed a break from it for now. I have also decided DD will have a purchased wedding dress I will make her garter.HAHA

I do miss working on in in a strange way I had such a routine get up early get coffee head out to the work table and start beading. I don't miss it enough to do it again. :)

So beautiful! The dress isn't bad either. :)

Seriously, your daughter looks so lovely in her dress. Too bad about the limo issues. I've only taken two limo rides in my memory (mom loves the story about how, when I was in kindergarden, we were living in a motel for a few months and the owner also had a limo for whatever reason and so, when her car broke down, the owner drove me to school every morning in the limo ... but that was a looong time ago) and neither were really great. Especially the second - July in Atlanta is NOT the time to get a limo with a broken AC!

Glad to hear your daughter and friends had a great time despite the small snaffu and I hope you all have had a wonderful summer!

Anyway, know this is a late note, but just wanted you to hear how beautiful your daughter and her dress are. Great job on both! :)
