A sack frock.
Posted: Tue Sep 11, 2007 2:53 pm
Ok, a sack back gown...
Made in shot silk taffeta (blue and pink, though colours don't come out too well in pics).
Has all the appropriate underpinnings (corset, panniers, etc). And has pinking on the ruffle edges.

It's very pretty!

The young lady in these pictures is my daughter and please believe me when I say the pictures don't do justice to the dress. It is truly spectacular and I cannot thank Tuppence enough for the work she has done here.

Get some professional shots of it at some point, too good not to have in the portfoliio, esp in a in situ shot.

It will also be featuring somewhat on the stalla t a certain weekend

Absolutely stunning - must have taken hours and hours to make ( especilly with all the underpinnings)

Dress at the Ball
Posted: Sat Sep 15, 2007 9:41 pm
That is just stunning, it looks like it moves beautifully.
What was the occasion of the ball?
Posted: Sat Sep 15, 2007 9:49 pm
The York Civic Trust organised a ball for York sixth formers in the Assembly Rooms.
It's in the lease of the Italian Restaurant (Ask) that they can be thrown out five times a year for functions. Most of the costumes came from theatrical suppliers and were of varying quality.
Tuppences dress was the best in the room by a very long way.

thanks for nice words - esp from lady c
glad she had a good time (and stood out).
am still slightly disbelieving that I made it, as per usual when I make something nice. I remember doing it, but.....

For those who wish to view in person the dress will be on display at TORM
on Ms Loughs stand

Late again, but......really, really lovely work! Really wish I could make it down to TORM to see it in real life.

Curses! (Not that I was actually awake at that point
) Alright, now I've got visions of a corset wandering around on its own
