those finishing bits
Right now I'm sitting in my re-vamped chemise dress waiting for B to mark my hem. Barring the event being canceled due to rain I'm wearing it to Belmont's Seurat Sunday tomorrow. I'd forgotten how much fiddly stiff was left to do. I should be able to get it all done today but still a bit of a pain.

It's a delightfully cool frock but I'm not convinced I like this style of gown on me. I have a feeling it's really one of those outfits that needs all the accessories (ie big hair) to look right though.

I wanted a new hat for the occasion but this week has been to hectic. I'll have to see how the fiddly bits go today... definitely something simpler than I'd imagined earlier this week. Oh well!

boring list making for me:
finish stitching lace at neck
add lace to sleeves
cut, sew & finish sash (green check taffeta)
ruffle on petticoat?

How about that big hat you just wore recently, with Fred? on it. Without the big hair, the big hat would balance the dress out and might make you like it better.

Chemise dresses definitely need all the accessories to look right. Just remember how awesome you looked at Costume College and how much fun the dress was to wear and you will get excited again. :)
