Sadly, today began with a freak ironing accident. Involving rust. The dress is now recovering, back to its crisp white, in the peaceful solitude of the shower.
I’ll have to wait to show you the delicate lace on the front of the blouse. The three satin buttons, which were left over from the making of my wedding dress, on the back of the blouse. The wonderful polka dots that add whimsy to what would otherwise be a lot of stark white. The cute gathered sleeves. The hand stitched details.
This dress needs some time to heal right now.
Plus, it’s not quite completed. Progress was stalled just before finishing the extravagant hem. The very last step. Of course.
