The dress in action

Thank you all so much for your comments, I did have a great time and the dress held up well. Maybe tacking the top of the bow down before hitting the dancefloor would have been a good idea but it always returned to where it was supposed to be when the bopping was over.

These are not the worlds greatest photos I'm afraid. People (even those who really should know better) just don't seem to get that I want pictures of dresses not faces! Anyway here you go....

As for my next project, I really want to start work on my DKNY shirtdress next but my washing machine has broken (with a full load stuck inside it) so I can't prewash my cotton fabric (or wear anything that is in the machine!). Now I am wishing I was one of those organised people who wash their fabric as soon as they get it home! I really hope I can get it repaired before Easter or I may be forced to wear the ballgown again by Monday.....




There were masks on all the tables, some conveniently matched my dress, although I only wore it for a few fun pictures.



Me and my photographer with whom I need to have words.....

  3. You look stunning - what an awesome job you did on the dress, it fits you perfectly and you were on a time crunch too - I think I want to be you when I grow up :)
    BTW I hope your washing machine doesn't get fixed in time. That dress deserves another outing - who cares if it's only to the supermarket?

  8. You and your photographer look very sophisticated. The dress is cut to perfection and the mask is an unexpected, wonderful surprise.
    As for the washing machine, I really hate when a household appliance breaks down. It usually then that we realize how important it really was.

  23. You did such a wonderful job on that dress, it fits perfect and looks amazing.

    That stinks about the washer. Mine's been broken for about two years now, so I have to go to the laundromat. The most aggravating thing about this for me is that I have to wait to prewash my fabric!
