Hey, here it is! I'm writing this late at night after my Black Tie event, but wanted to update with a few pictures. This is Vogue 1176, made strapless and floor-length. The fabric is a ruby-colored Vera Wang satin.
My mom (and dad) gave me the absolute perfect necklace for Christmas. How did she know? Mom-related sixth sense, I guess.
There are 16 rows of boning holding this baby up.
Evidently the dress code was actually "creative black tie." Yeah, I was waaaay overdressed. Whatever.
It's not quite right without glasses, is it?
The all-important butt view.
More details on the pattern to come, if you're interested.
A big shout-out to Jeff, who planned and hosted this entire event while extremely sick. Everyone, now: feel better, Jeff!
