a birthday and a present...giver unknown
About 6 weeks ago, I found this handmade hand-embroidered dress in an antique store for $4. I slipped in on over my head and was surprised that it actually fit. The dress wasn't finished. The sleeves were not sewed and it wasn't hemmed. I took it along with us to Chicago with the thought that I might be able to finish up the details and wear it even though that meant I'd have to do all the rest by hand. I had it done in time for my birthday, our last full day in Chicago and the last day of the one of a kind show.
