I'm Still Alive! And Sewing

I finished my ball gown for last night's ball just a couple hours before we left. The lighting at the ball was pretty wretched, as was the lighting at home, so the pictures aren't too great. Hopefully someday I can get a good set of photos for this gown. I definitely felt like a continental princess in it!

You are too modest. It came out beautifully lit, and you look a dream.

How stunning! I just recently found your blog and am blown away by the level of detail, polish, and accuracy in your costumes. I'm just learning how to sew and can barely conceive of how to sew a curved line, much less such intricate gowns. Well done!
