Thanksgiving 2019

DARQ: Hello! I am grateful for all who follow this blog and extend to you a heartfelt wish for a Happy Thanksgiving!

CATHERINE: I’ll second that – Happy Thanksgiving everyone! And, Darq, how do you like the 1920’s style gown I made for you?

DARQ: I love it! Especially because everyone can see the shiny bling on my shoes — — —

CATHERINE mutters: You and your shoes.

DARQ: What did you say?

CATHERINE: Enjoy the ball and Thanksgiving . See you when you get back to the farm.

NOTE TO SEWERS:

Here’s the inspiration for Darq’s gown —

This came from a cut-out book of 1920’s paper dolls. The gown is brown satin with metallic confetti. The contrasting tabs are synthetic suede lined with the same satin as the dress. Sewing all those point on the hem of the dress and sleeves was a challenge. I ended up using tulle for a facing because lining the dress would have made things far too bulky.
