  6. I hope that dress is still in the family and has been used by a daughter, or granddaughter, or neice. Beautiful!

  7. Angela, oh I wish! She said she thought it was lost in a move. So sad. I would have loved to have seen it in person! Isn't it a perfect 1940's dress - feminine and classy! Maybe we could have it recreated when our daughter gets married (20 years from now).

    Thanks for all the comments everyone! It is very much appreciated! :)
