Evening Gown

It has taken a year, however, I have finally completed the skirt for my evening bodice. Thankfully it was finished in time for my first ball.


On saturday 26th my husband and I attended the Grand Colonial Ball at Town Hall. It was a wonderful event and a lot of fun (even though we had no idea what we were doing for most of the evening). I even managed to dance a hole in my slipper (the sole decided it wished to become detatched).Due to attending the ball I also managed to complete my first head dress based on different aspects of fashion plates that I liked.

I am now on mid year break from university studies so hopefully I may get some more of my multiple projects completed.

Just a quick addition, our photo at the ball was featured in the Sunday Mail. Another proud moment.


  1. That is a beautiful evening gown and you look lovely in it!
    I have just come across your blog and have enjoyed reading it. Thank you for sharing on here. I can't wait to see what else you are sewing.

  2. Thank you for your sweet comments. I have many half completed projects. Hopefully I will be able to post some new completed outfits soon.

    Do you have a blog?

  3. I am sorry I missed your comment. I would love to see some of your projects when they are finished! No I do not have a blog. I also just noticed that you live in the same State as me. God bless!
