The Big Day

Well, it only sprinkled a bit when we were going and leaving so no real rain woes. It was pretty cold when we got there but after I got all my layers on, I was toasty and warm all day. Milord even started out complaining that he was too hot.

Anyway, we got so busy walking around, watching the shows (Sound and Fury FTW!), talking to all the people and getting asked to take photos with all the tourists... we kinda forgot to take pictures of ourselves.

We did manage to get TWO though. So be happy with that.

Almost there....

So, naturally, my plans for the collar lining weren't working out AT ALL... so I ripped it all out and re-did it. Yay for frustrated sewing! (not really... I think my machine needs a tune up now) I started working on the shoulder rolls with help from this blog, but those weren't turning out at all well EITHER, so I tossed them aside and did some quick and easy epaulette things. So far, so good.

Now all that's left to do is to fix up the closure for the dress (I'm thinking velvet ties with gold aigulettes), tack down the collar lining I've done (maybe add pearl accents if I have the time... there is a 3 hour drive to the festival) and fix up milord's scabbard with a fabric cover. *sigh*

*crosses fingers* that the weather doesn't get too hot, wet, muddy or humid!
