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.

Catherine’s computer screen winks on with Darq’s smiling face filling the monitor.

DARQ: Hi, Catherine. Just checking in with you. I’m having a great time in New York.

CATHERINE:  Nice picture, but what’s with the marquee and blank background?

DARQ: Security reasons. Don’t ask for the details. I’m lucky the MIBs allowed me this picture for my album. I wanted the marquee in the picture so you’d know I was really at the theater.

CATHERINE: Considering you saw the movie “Oz, the Great and Powerful,” why would you want to see “Wicked?”

DARQ: I was fascinated by the reviews. By the way, it was an excellent play. Oh, and I’m also sending you a picture, also background blanked out. It’s from the weekend in Boston, at the Pops. The weather has been terrible.”

CATHERINE: It hasn’t been any better here. Freezing cold and snow. You look nice in black.

DARQ: Thanks!  I got lots of compliments on the outfits.  Gotta go, the MIBs are impatient to get brunchy-breakfast.  Oh, before I forget, I should be back with you the first of the week.

CATHERINE: Just in time for fittings for that Erte-inspired Valentine’s dress I’m making you.

DARQ:  Great! See you soon. Bye.

The connection ends.
