a poll for Marianne
Still tired but it's getting better... My room is still trashed and my sewing machine still busted but I’ve been running around doing things for friends, family and church and so haven't gotten to it yet. And taking naps, which I never do normally. Proof I really am tired and not just a whimp. :>

Tonight is the Harvest Party at church. Originally I wasn’t going to go, just help with the set up, but the lady in charge heard I was good at the cake walk and she needed someone for that so she asked me. I decided I really didn't want to hang out at the house (we don't give out candy or turn on lights but the kids knock on the door anyway and it stresses me out) so I said yes. So this will be my 4th cake walk in a row. Yay. At least I get to dress up.

I'm doing Regency since it's my current favorite and it's comfy and cool. So I'll be Marianne Dashwood – at least most people will know who that is. I can't decide if I want to do the embroidered silk federal gown or the sparkly dress that goes under the Bee Robe. The train is shorter on the sparkly frock and it fits better (so less falling off the shoulders during the evening) but I don't know that I'm in the mood for sparkle and diadems. Simple white seems more Marianne to me…

So I will let you decide for me:
Poll #1080456 Marianne Dashwood

Which frock should I wear tonight?

embroidered silk gown
sparkly net gown (Bee underdress)

I vote the embroidered dress cause it seems like less sparkles are more Marianne. Make sure you take piccies! :)

I agree that the embroidered dress seems more Marianne. Have fun tonight! :)

I have to vote the contrary, and applaud the sparkly....I'm such a magpie, I love sparkly. ;-)

Tough call, but it seems like the sparkles more suit the occasion (I've found in the past that subtlety rarely works for costume parties). I know you're not so keen on it, but the Greensleeves gown really is lovely as well.

Have fun!

Oh I adore the Greensleeves, unfortunately the fabric rotted and I have to throw it away. Moo! I still have the sleeves... someday I’ll make a pillow with them or something. :>

Moo is right! So sorry to hear that; it was such an enchanting dress.

I had to vote sparkly. Marianne would've been happy to wear sparkles, and better fit and less fuss is good. :)

I voted for not sparkly. ;-) But then again all those sparkles sure would look pretty at night!
