THE DRESS!!!

Remember how I have talked about how amazingly talented my sisters are? Seriously... to the point of ridiculousness! Also, remember when my sister, Jamie, told me for a late birthday present she was going to make me a dress? Remember over Christmas break I picked out a pattern and material (and color) and she took my measurements and I showed you step one of the dress making process and had you guess what my dress would look like? That was a great post... so if you missed it, check it out here. WELL... The dress is finished! Just in time for my half birthday! Woohoo! It was TOTALLY worth the wait! I LOVE (all caps intended) my dress. I mean, I knew it would be great because Jamie is talented, but I didn't realize that it would be even better than what I expected.  Seriously, its like a professional sewed it. I could have bought this dress in a store.



Here are some pictures of the details of the dress. I love the pattern that I picked out and I love the lace my sister picked out for the bottom of the dress. Okay I could go on and on because I love everything about it.
P.S. The dress looks two different colors in these pictures because they are from two different cameras. Pictures were taken by Jamie & Dan Hixon.




I also love how it twirls.....



Thank you SO SO SO much Jamie! I love my dress.And I love you! Best late birthday present ever! I can't wait to wear it to church on Sunday. :o)



I have told you what I love about the dress. What is your favorite part of the dress? This dress and Jamie's hard work and talent deserves MAJOR shout outs from everyone! :o)

This is Estella, by the way, just in case I get listed as "Mom". Everything about the dress is beautiful, Tracy,(including the girl wearing it), but if I had to pick, I would say that I love the lace around the hem. It's gorgeous! What a talented sister you have!
