My sissy

Here she is reluctantly in her beautiful home she shares with her daughter Sophie, my beautiful niece!  I wish I could show you all her wacky poses but they are not suitable for primetime. So the background story goes like this.  I had this dress made by my seamstress from a dress that my sister had, which my sister loved!  It was a nice chocolate Brown Dress from Banana Republic.

  Here's the part where you wince… my seamstress had to cut it up to figure out how it was made, something she never does…well I had to deliver the bad news to her in person  so lucky for me when I saw her in Atlanta I had this dress with me ….it could have been real ugly!!!  Not the dress, the situation.  Anyway here it is The Matt Tux fabric worn beautifully by my precious sissy.

    Gorgeous sister, gorgeous dress! And my kind of gal, I love the vintage prints on her wall. Our Lady of Perpetual Help has always been one of my favorites.
    Thank you for a lovely post.

    What a beautiful dress and from the photo i think she really likes it too. I really wish I could sew like that. I’m going to try real soon. : ) Neet, thanks for sharing and how neat you are to have a sister that you are close with.

    The dress turned out beautifully. I’m sure she was very happy with it; even if she had to lose the other dress to get it;o) And your neice is gorgeous, I’ve seen her on your flickr page. In fact it was by showing my 6 year old, Eva a picture of her(to prove how cool it looks) that I FINALY got her to the hairdressers to have a bob cut! Unfortunately she has very fine hair and the end result was not nearly the same…ooops!

  18. That dress is stunning and I also love that gold colored top too. Beautiful garments.
