Action Shots of the Formal Gown


The wedding was a ton of fun! We really don’t do that kind of thing very often, so it was a nice change for us. A couple of people commented favorably on my dress and coat. Here are a few photos of the dress as worn by me, rather than just on my dress form. Most of them are in my house before we left, but there are a couple at the event, as well.

    Wow! The dress and the dress coat are absolutely gorgeous. I love them both. You must have caused a scene a la Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Miss you!

    Wow, really stunning, Claudine! The dress is reminiscent of a modern version of a gown from Downton Abbey.

      I was thinking Downton Abbey when I was making it. Hopefully, it does not look too costume-y.
