Friday Fictioneers: Altered

Jackie was trying not to be sad as she waited for her daughter Tiffany to appear. Today she would help her little girl choose her wedding gown. Jackie had always thought Tiffany would wear her mother’s dress, the dress she wore, but Tiffany said she wanted a dress of her own.

When Tiffany stepped out of the dressing room there was a gasp. She looked gorgeous. Jackie kept staring at her daughter and the dress and then she looked around the room. All eyes were on her and not the bride.

“I had it altered!” Tiffany cried as her mother ran into her arms.

  1. What a lovely story. My mother’s dress had been her grandmother’s, and was way too small for me. The old French lace was spotted but we made a christening gown from the best bits – a yard-long sweep of cream lace that a dozen of her grandchildren have been christenend in.
