Fun With Dots - Part 8 - Final Post
Fun With Dots is done, so here are the final photos, front, back and neckline:
Yes, I know there is something odd going on with the skirt. It is either hung up on the crinoline, or needs a good pressing or *something*. I will fix that before Saturday.
I do have to explain about the hat. The hat that I got from eBay was the wrong color. It was too yellow for this outfit, so I've decided not to use it. It really is not anyone's fault, as it is hard to discern colors via computer monitors and other people descriptions. Here is the substitute hat - a red one I found at the local antique store!
I did buy another pair of white gloves today, too. I've got other pairs, but some of them are beige or a dingy white, not bright white. I'm pretty happy with these because the scallops match the scallops on the purse trim. I know, matchy-matchy, but I like those sorts of little details.
Well, I really like how it turned out! My daughter said I looked like one of the ladies on the pattern envelopes. My husband thinks it needs a necklace. I'm not sure. What do you think?
Parting Shot: Vintage Lucite Shoes. I have been looking for a pair of these for a long, long time to wear with Bluebird of Happiness. They're not perfect, but they do have all their rhinestones and the pretty carving on the heel. They are not the fanciest pair I've ever seen, but I didn't pay that price tag, either (sometimes over $150 USD!). Finding them in my size is also a bit tricky, but these fit nicely!
