So here’s the tale of a magical dress..
A dress that once twirled through time..
It was the 1950’s..
And she was the talk of the town..
In her silk chiffon and satin..
She was breathtaking..
And literally stopped the show..
For all around could feel the warmth of her laughter…
And fell under her enchantment.
But those days were gone.
And long she had sat in a chest of memories..
Folded carefully and stored..
Hoping to one day twirl through time and hearts again..
While she waited
The moths tasted of her sweet cherry silks..
Unable to control their lust for her..
And time passed.
Perhaps she was forgotten..Lost to the world..
Lost to time.
But I came along.
And eager to unlock the memories of the chest..
I found her.
Tattered she was after half a century..
But I held her to my heart…feeling the warmth still within..
After that we spent our days together..
The warm autumn light splashing on the kitchen floor..we sat..
And that cherry silk became a part of my story..
Together we healed..and a garden began to grow between us..
My hands stitching and snipping away..
We transformed..She began to radiate again..
In that same way..
That old way..
But with a twist..a cherry colored twist..
Like in a tale of old.
Not lost to the world..
But rediscovered and reborn..
And so now I share our story with you..
A tale as old as time..
Of letting go..
And now it’s time to dance and twirl once again..
Nothing can stop us.
This 1950’s vintage dress has been carefully reworked and still shows some signs of damage from the moths and storage in the chest..
But for the most part she is whole and I would say in very very good condition!
