Son of dress 3!  
Hopefully this will be my last post - just thought people would like to see the completed frock. I have the petticoat to hem, and need to sew two ribbon bows onto the sleeves and that's it! (Unless I want to also sew appliques on which I'm now leaning towards not...)

It looks gorgeous! And you made it! It really is beautiful. Hurrah for you!

Thank you! I am quite pleased, although I hope I can be more leisurely about my next sewing project :) That is going to be a short Spencer type jacket for a Regency gown, btw...

WOW, that is totally stunning. You're incredibly talented in the dressmaking department!

Hee. Not that good, but it has been my biggest project so far! :) My next thing is going to be small and nowhere near as challenging!

Oh, wow! I am SERIOUSLY impressed!
Valderys: Avon - slightly sanevalderys on February 14th, 2011 09:29 am (UTC)
Hee. And I went to the RSC's costume sale on Saturday and picked up one or two more as well!

Not only is it gorgeous, but you are gorgeous in it. Not to mention incredibly talented to make it.

Thank you, hon! I need the big hair and the very pale make-up too, just for added authenticity! :)

Wow! That's amazing. Gorgeous.
Valderys: Avon - slightly sanevalderys on February 14th, 2011 09:31 am (UTC)
Cheers, hon! It's a relief having got it finished at last!

Looks great! You did a lovely job.
Valderys: Avon - slightly sanevalderys on February 14th, 2011 09:32 am (UTC)
Thank you! I know it's not perfect or entirely authentic, but I'm not re-enacting so I don't think it matters... :)

Yay for costume! Good to hear from you too! Are you coming over again at any point?

Oh wow!

If we're not careful, between us we'll have all the eras covered.

Hee. Glad you liked - and I've just picked up more at the RSC's costume sale. By the way, I've been meaning to ask you - are we doing the music and sketch thing with the Morgana costume at Redemption?
Hilaryelenopa on February 14th, 2011 04:32 pm (UTC)
Oh... Did you get David Tennant's slippers? I would have loved to go to that sale, even if I didn't buy anything.

I would like to do the Morgana thing; assuming I get it finished (half term next week!)

Oh, it's lovely! Congratulations on getting it done and in time.
Valderys: Avon - slightly sanevalderys on February 14th, 2011 09:37 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very happy to have managed it - see, posts of getting it done do work! :)

Fantastic!
Valderys: Avon - slightly sanevalderys on February 14th, 2011 09:38 am (UTC)
Yay! It makes me happy!

On other news: on Babel-17, Brother Thorgrim receives a telepathic message from Borther Aemilianus. It does not sound panicky. Ultramarines do not panic. But if they did panic, that might be what it sounded like. It would appear that a... situation... has arisen with regard to Brother Ramiel.

Wow, that looks fabulous (and so do you!)
