Queen of the Night

I am overwhelmed by the wonderful compliments on this dress from all of you. You all know I wouldn’t have made it without you, right? I would have gone for the ‘prom’ dress and called it a day. Thank you again for making me work to my full potential.

And a shot of the back. This really was fitted within an inch of its life. I think the back left was cut slightly off grain. Understitching and pressing within an inch of it’s life still had it turning out a little bit. For the front, my sewing neighbor thinks it could have been more fitted around the waist. I sayI needed that extra inch so I could eat!


And now, I have to go to bed. I’m operating on four hours sleep. Thanks again y’all!

Ta Da!

Well, here we are. The roommate (on the left), my coworker Anna, and Mr. Hunkle. We started with a small cocktail party at my house before heading downtown. In an effort to skip coat check for 2000 people (and well, walking) one of my awesome neighbors dropped us curbside!

I have discovered champagne takes away the pain of 3.5 inch heels. And that you should eat before you start drinking it.


It was a fabulous time! We got back around midnight and stayed up until three eating and talking. My arm is a little strained right now from patting myself on the back all night. I loved, loved, loved my dress! No one else had anything like it.

And now, I am very very late for work. I think we are all very, very late for work!

Thank you all so much for your help and encouragement on this project!
