“Emerald - #1 for 2013”

Description from Granny Nancy: This is reminiscent of the 50s when the big collars were "in". So this has a semi large collar with short sleeves. It is ALL chiffon - so soft and flowing. The 2 hearts represent the 2 of us (and earrings) and since he often bought me green dresses and emerald is "the" color for 2013, I wanted to try to create what I love in an evening gown.

I like full skirts but not overdone - this has a lovely full skirt that flows from a ribbon sash of peacock green. The goal is for something a 73 yr old granny could look OK in.

I've bought some real emerald and some malachite to create a beautiful necklace that is basically an emerald green color. I'm not sure exactly what I'll put with it. But I'll put up a picture when its done. Don't look for it soon as I move like a snail in reality.

    Your way with a descriptive phrase makes it easy to visualize the scene, dress…whatever. I bet if you described a cake I could taste it.

    Beautiful greens I’m sure your necklace will be beautiful as well.

    Absolutely stunning! Emerald is my birthstone but I seldom use it since it’s so bright and glaring. The malachite is a good mix with it. :)

    Enjoy your sweet dance in your lovely gown, my friend!!!
