Early Mother’s Day Post

7 May

My dad flew back to Panama last week and took a little package home with him for my mom


Yeah. That’s my mom looking all foxy coming home from church in the BWOF 2-2009-119  dress that I did not love on me. She’s managed to work it into several conversations and has shamelessly hinted around for more.

Soooo, yeah. She looks awesome. I now have no excuse not to make her something every so often.

    How old was she when she had you?! Wow she really does look fabulous, and the dress is really great on her.

    Wow, she looks great in that dress! A Good daughter would make another one immediately! Are you SURE that’s your Mom? She doesn’t look old enough to have kids your age!

  17. Elizabeth May 7, 2009 at 15:52 #

    Your mom is ROCKING that dress!!! Go Cidell!

  18. Marty May 7, 2009 at 16:25 #

    I agree-your Mom looks so young, like a teenager! Just think how nicely you’ll age, too.

  19. africaliving May 7, 2009 at 16:33 #

    Your Mom is HOT. I liked the dress on you, but honestly, she really makes it look special, too. Maybe it’s the tropical lighting.

  20. Ann's Fashion Studio May 7, 2009 at 17:18 #

    She looks wonderful in this dress. It fits her perfectly!

  21. Belinda (sew4fun) May 7, 2009 at 17:56 #

    Wow your mom looks fabulous! The style really suits her.

  22. gold May 7, 2009 at 18:12 #

    That looks great on her !What a wonderful mother’s day gift!

  23. Lisa May 7, 2009 at 18:52 #

    Your mom certainly compliments that dress. Or is it the dress that compliments mom? I’m SURE she’s thrilled with it. Lovely gift for Mother’s Day.

  24. Lane May 7, 2009 at 18:58 #

    That dress was meant for your mom. She looks terrific in it.

  25. barb May 7, 2009 at 19:46 #

    The dress looks great on your Mom. You know people always think after a certain age dresses have to be below the knee but the dress has a great length. Your mom looks like she is in excellent shape.

  26. Gwen May 7, 2009 at 20:09 #

    Your mother is gorgeous. Geez, she looks young!

  27. Diane May 7, 2009 at 20:33 #

    Your mother is beautiful and that dress is perfect. Wow.

  28. Marsha May 7, 2009 at 20:44 #

    The dress looks fabulous on your Mom! Then again, I thought it looked good on you too!

  29. Christina May 7, 2009 at 21:28 #

    That’s a perfect mother’s day gift.

  30. Rose May 8, 2009 at 00:09 #

    Your mom looks amazing in the dress–it’s a great fit in style and color. She is really rocking it! Yah, it’s great that you and your mom wear the same size, although you may need to lock your closet when she comes to visit. (I’m joking!) :)

  31. mochimo May 8, 2009 at 02:30 #

    A very beautiful dress for a very beautiful mom!

  32. Isabelle May 8, 2009 at 02:31 #

    Great fit, the dress looks fabulous on your mom.

  33. Sue May 8, 2009 at 04:29 #

    That pattern looks great on your Mum! It makes me want to make it!

  34. Beth Conky May 8, 2009 at 06:37 #

    The dress looks wonderful on your Mom. She’s so beautiful. Not hard to see were you get your good looks.

  35. Leslie in Austin May 8, 2009 at 09:13 #

    Work it Mama! That dress is so perfect on her!!

  36. Katharine in Brussels May 8, 2009 at 10:39 #

    She is stunning in it! Look where all your gorgeous genes came from :) You’re immeasurably fortunate to have her in your life.

  37. Lynda in LV May 8, 2009 at 11:42 #

    Wow! You got good genes! Your mom and her dress are both lovely! That’s a good incentive to sew for her–she wears the project so well!

    I’m sure she appreciates the thoughtfulness of her daughter!

    Another mom…with sons who don’t sew! LOL

  38. Lindsay T May 8, 2009 at 13:05 #

    Mom looks great in this dress! I tell you, if my daughter ever made me a dress I would have a heart attack.

  39. BlackWomenBlowTheTrumpet May 8, 2009 at 14:20 #

    Hi there!

    This is absolutely stunning!

    Fantastic work!

    Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

  40. Izzie May 8, 2009 at 17:40 #

    Wow! It looks great on her! I thought it looked great on you too.

  41. Summerset May 8, 2009 at 18:23 #

    You mom looks amazing and beautiful in that dress! Lucky you to have such a awesome mom.

  42. ClaireOKC May 8, 2009 at 21:19 #

    Good Grief – your mother must have had you when she was 2 y/o….she looks so young – like you’re older sister. What fabulous genes you have!

  43. allisonc May 9, 2009 at 04:23 #

    Wow she really looks fantastic in that dress, I’m not surprised she’s hinting at some more!

  44. Cindy May 9, 2009 at 12:44 #

    Your mom is a fox! And she looks so proud to be wearing that great dress. Now you have to make her more.

  45. gabrielle May 9, 2009 at 16:13 #

    The very definition of a hot mama! The dress suits her perfectly.

  46. Linda May 9, 2009 at 17:10 #

    Your Mom looks stylish (and quite content!) in your dress; it fits is as if you made it with her in mind!! What a great Mother’s day “surprise” for her! Linda

  47. Cennetta May 11, 2009 at 11:48 #

    Your mom looks fantastic in your dress!

  48. lisa May 11, 2009 at 13:34 #

    Wow your Mom looks awesome . I really like that dress , its so flattering .

  49. dami May 11, 2009 at 16:43 #

    she looks so cute! i like =)

  50. Sandy in Wichita May 12, 2009 at 08:10 #

    I must add yet another affirmation of what a great dress that is for your mom and that she most definitely IS a foxy looking Mom!!

  51. The Slapdash Sewist May 12, 2009 at 11:18 #

    Oh my goodness, she looks so adorable! You’re inspiring me to sew more for my mom.

  52. Kathleen O'Brien May 12, 2009 at 11:47 #

    Goodness, gracious! She only looks old enough to be your sister! Your mom is stunning – and the dress is pretty darn lovely too. Thanks for being so generous with your writings and pictures.

  53. Cindy May May 12, 2009 at 15:04 #

    oh damn, i’m quitting. When someone’s mom looks a million times better in the dress than me, it just deflates me completely!

  54. Shelley May 14, 2009 at 04:01 #

    Yes, she does look really good and I don’t blame her for wanting you to make her some more lovely dresses! Can I ask what she is doing in Panama? My cousin has a thing about living in Honduras and head-in-the-sand me is just coming around to discovering Central America… I’d do a search to try to answer my own question, but I don’t find a search button thing on your blog.

    I envy you your sewing skills, but realise you work hard to have them. I’m slowly coming along with mine…you’re an inspiration!

  55. Kim Brown May 15, 2009 at 16:30 #

    It looks like to made it just for her. Wonderful, and so sweet!
