The bodice revealed!



Lets see if I can upload some pics today. (didn't take too long!)

It was difficult for my (poor) DH (sitting thru it all) to take well lit photos. There was just dark flattering lighting, thank goodness!  Once I'd found where he was sitting I could enjoy a good pose - well, I was in the mood!




Excuse the redeye too! An outfit for every day wear?



another beautiful bodice



fabulous one piece





gorgeous accesories & a "waspie" type bodice




more accessories



What a hussy! I'm not winking or asleep, just trying to see where I'm going, down some steps in heels!
The background is great, wish I'd been involved in making it.



The red chair is supporting the broken ankle of the director who's commentating - she's got some baby bunting wrapped round the top of the cast!

I'm sure I was made to wear that fabric in the 70's!











That's not flesh bulging out (tho I wish I'd not forgotten to wear those slimmimg girdle pants!) Lesson one, never use a pale beige lining for your creations, unless it matches what you're making of course. Hopefully there'll be a pic in the West Highland Free Press newspaper of the actual top of my parasol - I should have started on the inside first!






What a poser, I had such fun at my first fashion show!
