Ok I didn't spend the WHOLE day by myself like a hermit, the parents lured me over with promises of Dairy Queen ice cream cake and presents and of course I happily fell for the trap. After much ice-cream-snarfing and opening my very first coffeepot with all sorts of accompanying coffee flavors, I settled down on the couch and sewed more. GREAT day!
Mom took pictures of me dressed up because I've been promising to show her what I've been working on, and I was happy to not have to take blurry shots of my new en fourreau in the mirror like usual.
Why is it so hard to get stomachers pinned correctly? I see why people prefer closed-front gowns, big time. I am so proud of my cute little maroon pincushion, I copied it off of:
And I think it'll be quite handy! Here is a close up of it:
A full-length picture of the gown...the back is all wrinkly and ill-fitting right now though so I'll post that after I fix it.
And my own mom wanted me to pose in a most unladylike and provocative manner (really, Mother! The indignity!) to show off my shoes and stockings...she was quite charmed by them. Although who wouldn't be? Yay for American Duchess products!
