Party Time!

Well, I got my dresses done! I HAD to make two. I dreamt about their designs last night. Really! One HAD to be Parisian, featuring my favorite icon with the enigmatic smile. The other HAD to be Asian (because I obsessively collect Asian rubber stamps I have yet to use!) The Asian shift is for the cocktail hour. Eb, may I have a paper umbrella and a tall, slim glass for my raspberry wine?

My Parisian number is for twirling and swirling (notice the full skirt). I plan to drink and dance until I can't feel my feet anymore. Okay, so maybe I will stop after one drink (I am a cheap drunk), but keep dancing! Barefoot! I'm sure Rebecca will join me for dancing. She likes to wear two dresses at once because two dresses twirl and swirl better than one! And I have to give a public thank you to Linda who RAK'd me with the lovely hanger when I boo-hooed about not having one (like everyone else) for this wonderful event. It was completely unexpected and such a kind and thoughtful thing to do. What a friend! I'm sure she would give me the dress off of her back if I could just squeeze into it!
Speaking of lovely dresses that don't fit, I have two that need someone to wear and appreciate them. You can see them here and here. The first has gorgeous sequined chrysthanamums on the bodice (goes with this whole harvest moon party theme) and the second is a cute little retro vintage looking ensemble. I would love for a couple of fellow bloggers to have them!
