The Guild has again provided and amazing opportunity to live for a few moments in another era. It was a truly magical evening. At 9:20 we had a moment of silence and a toast to those who departed on the ill fated voyage.
Below are photos of the completed dress on the form then on me, and a few photos of others. The sepia toned one was by a photographer provided by the event and my wonderful friend John who decided to escort me so I wouldn't have to do the event "doe" (as opposed to "stag"). The project although not quite what I had envisioned was pleasing. Footnotes are that I need to cut down the top of the corset by at least a half inch in front but for now it will stay. Before I put the dress away I will also need to clean the train (thank goodness it is poly given how many times it was stepped on) and finish some beading repair that I didn't have time to do.
