As promised, I’m sharing a photo of the finished dress. I apologize for the photo quality. I’m up to my neck in paperwork right now and didn’t have time to get better photos. Rather than break my promise to post a photo, I’ll share a couple we took with my phone. I hope to get close-up photos of the little details soon to be posted here, as well as having those photos taken in better light.
My dress was very simple compared with most of the sparkling attire at the ball but I wasn’t worried about it. I really like the way my dress and jacket turned out. My sister made her dress and shawl, as well. She and a friend even attached all the crystals that you see on it. We really had a nice evening, as evidenced by this picture of our party.
I will have to close here for tonight. I’ll be back again tomorrow! Hope to see you then!
