She Moves In Mysterious Ways
It has been another hard day in the dress shops. The BA teeters from one extreme to the other.
"I want red. I want feminine. I want structure. I want chiffon." And through it all the phone is snapping pictures.....snap, snap snap.
Mummy is there, purse at the ready and today I almost thought we had it!
Putting aside the five other dresses she'd tried on, we went home to Himself for a designers opinion.
Himself's trouble is that, like most men, he favours a dress which demonstrates all the wearer's assets.
"What's that?" he exclaimed. " It looks like she's hiding."
Realising we could not rely on him for an objective opinion we went back to the photos. They all looked sadder and less inspiring on the computer screen. In fact, I was leaning back towards this one...
So I went on a pattern search. And found this.
So then I was on a search for fabric....how about this embroidered silk dupion????
The BA is keen. Now to find a seamstress.
WHAT? You thought I was going to make it????????? hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
