Graduation Dress Diary, Chapter 1

I thought I'd start a little "Graduation Dress" series, following the progress of my next exciting project. It's amazing to see God working even in the tinest things in our lives. He truly does care about us, and cares about the things we care about. What an awsome God! What is man that He should even think of us?

The Pattern
This dress's story starts with a picture I found in one of my "dress idea" folders. I had saved this picture who knows how long ago, and when looking for a graduation dress ideas I happened upon it. As you can see in the picture the pattern number it completely torn off...the search began.

So, all I knew was that this pattern was old(er) and was Simplicity. I asked around and looked around and couldn't find this pattern, so I just figured I could try and make it up myself, possibly putting a few different patterns together to get what I was looking for. I just didn't feel right about it, and knew I wouldn't be happy with it if it didn't turn out exactly like this one (above). So, after searching for one day all over the internet, I went to bed. Then next morning during my devotion time I prayed about it, asking the Lord to lead me to the right pattern and to help me to re-create this beautiful dress. That day I got the brilliant idea to see what the origninal saved name of the picture was! What do you know, it was a pattern number: 4640! I searched on eBay again and I found it! I was so thrilled, I couldn't believe it! It is from 1954, had never been cut, and was just around my size! Isn't God good!?
