Sadly the dress had a whole different shape than I expected it to have - I thought that it would be an A-line shape, but instead it had the shape of a V. Arghhh!!! I was so dissapointed.
And as for the Petticoat, we almost got a shock when we saw the colour of it. We had seen the photo with the soft and very pastel coloured skirt, but in real life it was a peachy color, close to being luminous.
So those two online purchases were not succesful at all. The dress has been sent back to the shop, but the Petticoat is still here with us - lying in a chair and almost shining like a torch!
The gala dress is coming along niecly, and I think that I will be done with it tomorrow. However, we have been compelled to have a gala dress backup, due to the unfortunate skirt. Luckily Anne-Sophie has bought several dresses to wear on all the many coming days, when she and her friends will celebrate that they have become students. A beautiful short vintage dress from the USA is her other option, and that one goes perfectly with her shoes as well.
But only time will tell us which dress she has to wear on the gala night...
Besides all the negative stuff, I have been doing a tiny bit of handsewing too - on the little red dress with the embroidered pockets. A happy and quiet project, which I'm pleased with.
