Every time I check the weather for next weekend, it's something different. It's very frustrating. I know they can't predict it too accurately that far in advance, but I can't help but want to be prepared. I decided to pkay around with jewlery options for my new gown. I'm between the emeralds and diamonds. The coral just doesn't look fancy enough. I like the emeralds best, but I'm not sure is the green goes with the geeen in the dress. So it's most likely the diamonds. I took the stone off the marching earrings and set them on a pair of Betsy Johnsons so I could have a matching set and still have the Rocco bows.
I've been too busy to post, I've been working on two dresses back to back. My current one is for the garden party in Williamsburg. I love the fabric, but since he party is at night, I thought it could use some sparkle. I started to add some gold spangles to the flowers, but now I'm not sure if it works. Opinions?
Please excuse the mess, I haven't had much time to clean. And the mannequin is a little bit bigger then me, which is making some wrinkles.
I was given about 2 1/2 yards of this lovely silk from madamekat , just enough to make a cute little jacket like you see in the 1780's. And I had some silk fringe that had been bought for another project that never happened. I already had the sheer petticoat, so now all I need is a hat!
