Well, shoot. The link isn't working for me. Maybe the met is down for maintenance or something. I'll try again later.

But I absolutely LOVE Jeanne Hallee's gowns! The one I am planning on doing for the Titanic night at Dress U is one of her gowns.

Gorgeous dress!

This is the one I am planning on doing:

Ooh I haden't found that one yet - really, really pretty! Are you going to use those colors too?

Yes, to me the colors are what make the dress. Which is why finding the perfect fabric is so important. There is another Jeanne Hallee dress that is my back up. It is on the one with two dresses.... let me see if I can find it. The one on the right here, the blue one:

I have some gorgeous copper burnout velvet that is similar to the blue. The thing that worries me about this dress though is that I am not so skinny as that model so I don't know if it would look weird in a different proportion.

This is the fabric I was talking about. One at the top of the post.

Oh I've always loved that blue velvet and your fabric is lovely!
