I put most everything on tonight after finishing up the baragoni to wear to fighter practice as sort of a trial run before pictures. Still a few things to finish up (like my coat) but I thought I was pretty well done. A few minor things turned up like one part of the pleats of the skirt separating and a big run in the fabric of my stockings that needs to be mended. Simple repairs. Easily fixable. All except for one thing--
I had my bodice patterned to back in April. I made the bodice back in June. In June it fit perfectly. In June I was nursing twins. They've been weaned since. . .
Yeah. It doesn't fit so well any more. Not terrible and its certainly wearable, but ugh! I was feeling so good about my pretty dress. Not that its not still pretty. It most certainly is. Just to reassure me a little 5 year old girl came up to me in the park and had her mom ask me if she could have her picture taken with me because I looked like a princess. It really is a cool dress. Ah well, nothing ever comes out as well as you'd like it to I suppose.
