finished frock

I’m leaving in an hour or two, but I finished the dress.

I think I made the sleeves too short, and I should have added the cuffs to the end of the silk to make them longer, rather than overlaying them, but I was intending to take these off and make better cuffs as these were a bit last minute.

A couple of the gems were rejects from the last project, so they went round the back. And I left the final two loops empty, with a hole for the pin of a fastening brooch.

And I finally got round to properly refurbishing my posh belt. I hadn’t realised the mounts wieght 10ounces of silver until I wieghed it this morning – no wonder it hurts when the aiglet bangs my knee.

Also, Because I’m meant to be compering the fashion show at evesham, I need a notebook. Except I’m at Gareths, and despite reminding myself several times I left my leather notebook cover at home. So gareth got me a cheap notebook from asda, and I pieced together some scraps to make a girdlebook. If I’m honest I would have preferred a different silk, but the other silks were all big pieces, so I joined together a load of little bits instead.
