A sack frock.

Postby Tuppence » 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.

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.

You are such a clever lady, I am knocked sideways by this!

Now, if you can get it in the post for me asap, that would be great... :P

Stunning.

That is just stunning, it looks like it moves beautifully.

What was the occasion of the ball?

The York Civic Trust organised a ball for York sixth formers in the Assembly Rooms.

http://www.ukattraction.com/yorkshire/assembly-rooms.htm

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 :mrgreen:

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.....
