blue poofiness

Been lots happening lately, just not a lot of finishing projects.  I have an 1870s day dress on the dress form right now (new work outfit), half of a wedding petticoat done, and a ton of ideas.  Plus, Dena and I will be going to the Sonora Celtic Faire in a few weeks, which requires new attire.

I had to share the photos we took of the petticoat materials: silver slipper satin and navy tulle

Pink and Poofy c 1950

Just had to share the good sights.  I'm not completely finished yet, but I am so very excited about the results.  This is my version of Butterick's "Walk Away" dress done in beetroot party taffeta with a black organza overlay.  The petticoat is white net with beetroot taffeta ribbon.  I'm planning to wear this for my rehearsal for the wedding.  Speaking of that, we ordered the tulle and silver satin for the edging.  Only 116 more days until THE DAY.
