Lynzie and I leave for England in just two days!!! Woo Hoo!!! We've been busy sewing the last couple weeks and I told her everything has got to be done by tonight! She's not quite ready to do her big outfit reveal yet, so I might add her pictures to this post later on, but here are the two outfits I made to take.
This dress, minus the spencer jacket, was my ball gown from 2013. I lowered and widened the neckline and fixed some of the fabric-covered buttons on back. Then I made this spencer jacket to go over it. It's my favorite dress ever and the one I plan on wearing when we visit Bath Abbey for church on Sunday.
My favorite part of this dress is the lovely set of fabric-covered buttons on the back. (I replaced the plastic ones.)
This dress is made from silk that I got on an excellent deal earlier this summer. I made a pelisse to go over it from some sari fabric a friend gave me last time I was in England.
I admit, it was a little scary cutting into this beautiful fabric---but it all turned out ok.
Here's a sneak peak at Lynzie's dress. She wants to do a photo shoot later today so I'll put those up when I can.
The next week or so will be filled with guest posts from some of my friends and family. I hope you'll check out all their hard work and leave lots of sweet comments. I sure appreciate my guest bloggers!Linking with:
