And Them There Are Design Changes…

Sometimes, a better dress design happens when one simplifies. I went from full-on vintage lace, big pleats and frills…to scaled vertical tucks and old embroidered trim. I still have plans for some bows, though! 🙂

What’s On

Remember the brown silk suit? Same pattern draft, but in cotton. Once I get those cut steel buttons on and photograph it, the brown one will be for sale, but this cotton print one is mine all mine! 😁 Wouldn’t that one be pretty in a blue print with blue silk? That one will be next and that one will be another one for sale in the shop!

At The Ball!

And finally we made it! In spite of all the last-minute adjustments, snafus, and general craziness, it was all worth it!  Of, course no ball is complete without last-minute adjustments to the ballgown…

Arriving at the Assembly Rooms…

Overall, it was a marvelous experience and the pictures don’t do justice to the event- we’ll definitely be back. 😄
