One More Tribute to the Incomparable Granny

The lovely Strange Little Mama left a comment requesting pictures of the knitted wedding dress I spoke of in my previous post, but I felt sure I wouldn't be able to produce said pictures assuming they would surely never be available in digital format.

Well, wonders never cease! My ever-gracious and ever-generous Aunt Molly read that comment and moments later sent me the following pictures. I just LOVE the instantaneous picture sharing that is possible nowadays. I also love my Aunt Molly. Did I tell you all that I was named after her? lucky me.

HERE is the astonishing dress -- and the fabulous 1975 wedding pictures - enjoy:








Guess who the flower girl was. Yes. That's me. A fabulous day that lives large in my memory.

Now that I see the pictures, I realize that the dress was knit of lace weight yarn. In the message she sent with the pictures, Molly points out that these pictures do not sufficiently convey the beauty of the dress. You have to look closely to get a sense of the amazing delicacy of the lace (click the first picture to get a good detail) and you have to imagine the way it moved thanks to it's flowing cut. It's truly a dazzling dress and one day perhaps one of Molly's two beautiful daughters will don it on her wedding day...
Thanks for the good memories.

Oh, that is spectacular!
 
I can't believe she knit that dress. It is beautiful.
 
Oh, so gorgeous!! I'm teary-eyed.
What a cute flower girl, too.

Thanks, Aunt Molly!
 
What an awesome Grandmother, the dress is beautiful.
