strapless and stapled

Several of you asked that I post photos of my Beaux Arts Ball dress as a follow up to my last post. Ha...I'm not sure why you didn't think the drawing itself was an accurate representation?!? What was it? The fact that I drew myself 8 feet tall or 90 pounds?

Well, while I'm happy to oblige on the photos, unfortunately, I didn't get any good ones Saturday night. So, instead, I hope this "accurate" drawing clarifies things a little.As you can see I made a few changes in the construction of the dress. It's hard to get fancy when you're holding things together with staples! One word: PAINFUL.

LOL! You're so cute, Suzanne! It's a great dress, staples or otherwise.

It reminds me of when Marilyn Monroe had her dress stitched on to her - you know the barely-there, shimmery one that she wore to sing happy birthday to JFK? Ouch!

Staples??!!?? Sounds like such fun though ... was the bride happy with you "re-interpretating" the dress? ;)
