And everything else, BTW. The dress totally hits the mark. I'm probably older than your mother and sometimes it's downright embarrassing how much we were into things like Laura Ashley (don't even get me started on Shoulder Pads

please hold while I Google...Jessica McClintock
anyway...I digress. Your dress and, needless to say, your sewing skills are fabulous.
