I'm so glad this was all you wanted it to be! It looks like a simply amazing evening. Your black is just gorgeous. Everything is lovely, the fit, the proportions, the trim (even minimal as it is) - I love it! The back is particularly awesome; again, I think it's just something about the proportions of it, the depth of the neckline, the width of the pleats, and the exquisite fit, that just make it extra special.

And those are EPIC feathers. I know what you mean about them being self-willed, though. They just want to point their own way!

I had no idea you sing! (Or did I know and just forgot?) I think that's awesome! I love singing, and I've wanted to learn some 18th century or Regency things, but the opportunity hasn't come up and I'm shy of making one. What did you sing? I hope someone videoed - I want to hear it!

Thank you so much! I think proportion is really the key to this style and I worked really hard on that so your compliments mean heaps!

I love to sing, it's one of my great joys, although I rarely sing in public these days. Besides helping to lead worship for the mid-week service as often as I can that is.

I went with something easy and funny, knowing I'd be nervous (there is nothing that will make you feel more naked than singing acapella in front of a group that has never heard you sing before!) so I sang "The False Young Sailor". I don't think anyone was videoing but me that night but if you prompt me after I've had a pink drink or two at Costume College and you may get an encore. :>
