First photoshoot posted from home!

So guess what folks? I'm Back! truly!

No more post dating a dozen half done posts once a week.

No more being tired of the latter and not posting at all!

I have internet at home again, and I'm ready and raring to go!

So, first off is this dream dress of mine!

This pink (not sure of material...) Organdy-type, Gauzy material, caught my eye on the Jo-Anne's sale rack months ago. Recently I took a notion and bought it. :D Three whole yards at my disposal.
My new rose bush, fully flowered. :D

I was rather worried about working with it. I was afraid that, number one, I hadn't gotten enough material. The pattern called for five yards! (I can make a nice civil war dress on that much.) The other concern was working with this type of material, would it drive me nuts?

My hair was a youtube tutorial inspired by "Lady Mary" from Downton
So instead of the usual two days I usually give myself to make a dress, I gave myself all week, and took my time. I had rented "Downton Abbey: Season Two" from the library so I had pleanty of time on my hands.

The pattern was the Rocking Horse Farm; New Empire Day Dress. I had made it twice before (pictures to come) so I was quite confident in it.

Being able to take my time was wonderful, everything came together beautifully!

The collar is a piece of vintage lace that a lady at church gave me. It's probably later in date, but it works. Enjoy these pictures!
