When my mom graduated, her mom, my grandma, made her a dress for a party. The fabric was really heavy, good quality silk and the skirt part was a full circle. When I was ten (or somewhere around that age), I found the dress from my grandma's closet and wanted it to be altered to fit me. That dress is now in Emma's closet. It is perfect and I love it.
Apologies for the electrical socket in these pictures - you will seeing it a lot in future photos as well, since this seems to be the best place to take photos :)
