Sneak peek...

Just wanted to share a few pictures of the dress I'll be wearing in Paris! I'm leaving on Wednesday!!! Pictured below is the adorable corset. I'm not as slim as I'd like to be but I can't postpone my life til I'm thinner, so I'll be tying that corset as tight as I can. :)
This next picture is the bottom of the pantaloons, they're so cute!
And of course a peek at the dress. It will be a miracle if it's done in time. It is seriously going to be sooo gorgeous! I can't take any of the credit for the workmanship. I just cut out pattern pieces and sewed a pair of pantaloons. My mom has done the rest. She is in full on project mode right now. My mother is really an amazing woman. She made prom dresses for my sisters and I and made a beautiful wedding dress for me when I got married. I think she's as excited about this trip as I am. We originally thought about just doing a solid color fabric but then we found this brocade fabric and fell in love, and it was 50% off! My mom is also making a dress for my friend to wear. We are totally going to be princesses for a day.
My poor blog will be a bit neglected while I'm gone, but stay tuned for pictures and stories from the trip when I get home. Thank you to all my blog friends for your comments, it means so much to me. Here's a goodbye hug from me. xoxo
