The Dress

Yesterday, upon hearing that I was going to post pictures of my dress on my blog, my very dear friend Ms. Kari warned me against doing so because then Silas would see them and that is bad luck - which I say Luck Schmuck. In the event that any of you share her fears, let me put them at ease, or not, by letting you all know that I have already shown these to Silas. As if I wouldn't! Pft!

And so, my friends, I present to you, in all its glory, my dress.

I love the way this bodice fits for so many reasons. But I must say that my favorite thing about it is the mismatched buttons. If you look closely you will see that they are different shades of grey, blue, tan, and green, and that they are also different sizes. I'm spending every moment I'm not addressing invitations making lace for the trim. More pictures will be posted upon completion of said project.

The back of the dress, sans bustle. Also missing the three beautimus pewter buttons that go over the pleats that you saw in the above pictures. Again, pictures to be posted upon completion.
Here it is. And I don't really have anything to say about it because, well, what does one say about a picture like this? I said it all in my last post.

  1. Wow that'[s really cute, and so...old fashioned, in a good way of course! I don't believe in all those superstitions either luck is only relative anyway.
