The Frou Frou Finale

Well, the Frou Frou Party Dress is a "fait accompli", and not a moment too soon.  Unlike the Prom Dress, I just had finishing touches to make on the dress, like adding the bow to the shoulder and pressing out the wrinkles.

Here she is trying the dress on before finishing the inside workings.

I must admit, I'm not terribly happy with the horizontal lines running across the overskirt-portion of the dress.  It fit her perfectly yesterday, so I'm not sure what happened today, but it looks like there isn't enough fabric going around her middle.  Unfortunately, I was on a time deadline and couldn't focus on correcting that issue, but I will make the needed adjustments later.  This dress is too cute, and I think she may actually wear it again, so it will be worth the effort.

Here she is all dress and accessorized up...

...and here she is with her girlfriends.  Can you guess which young lady is the Birthday Girl?

Oh, and here's Max...after Emanne descended it, he climbed up and balanced himself on my step.  I promised him that I'll make him something soon - perhaps a rain slicker for those moments he needs to go outside but hesitates doing so because he doesn't want to get wet.

Max, can you say "Bourgeois Bulldog"!!

Be blessed!!


P.S.  I'm going to give myself a break on the dress fit...I just noticed the pattern picture has horizontal lines on the overskirt, too!!  I think our version looks very close to the pattern, don't you?


  1. Yes, the dress is very beautiful!

  2. Thank you so much...I really appreciate it.
