I'm still too tired and drained to have much to say, but I wanted to show you the pictures as I promised of all the finished gowns we did for the ball last Friday night. The girls were so beautiful and enjoyed themselves so much. My hubby and son were SO handsome--I'm scheming ways to get them in tailcoats more often! :)
Enjoy the pictures. Please ask questions in the comments if you have them.
C and her little brother. I love that smile!
The whole girly crew. I made ALL those gowns!(that astounds me for myself, really! lol.)
Sisters. Up close view of bodices. Both of these girls had full sheer gowns over full petticoats. The Redhead's petticoat was pink(of course!).
In true JA fashion, there was a shortage of male partners. That did NOT stop the girls from dancing every dance, however!
This was a good view of the back of C's dress with her silver shoes peeking out.
Eeek! They're so pretty! Totally worth it!
My little Mr. Bingley. What a kid! He was SUCH a good sport!
When they arrived at the ball.
My handsome guys. Too bad the good camera's battery died before the evening ended. We snapped this on his cell phone; thus the poor resolution. I still think it's a framer!
One pretty shot of my J. She is a force in motion most of the time--her gown was lovely on her; perfect for her hair and complexion.
To answer any questions about why I am not in the pictures: my gown needed literally 45 more minutes to complete, and we had to GO!
It was still worth it.
