yesterday a wonderful wonderful woman i work with gave me this dress
'used to belong to a square dancer!
so here it is! after a quick revamp-- my new dress!
i do with the the person who made this originally had used a matching thread with the rick rack, but as an incredibly lazy person, i can understand seeing this as too much effort. seriously.
well, with my new dress finished (i promise the crinoline doesn't hang down this far under it when i wear it...) i went out to run errands today and got lots of compliments from all of the old southern gent's i ran into at the grocery store. that must mean it was a success!
