Contest results

Well, I got third place in the Halloween costume contest, but I had fun putting my costume together. And it was a good opportunity to start relearning how to use a sewing machine.  :)

Next sewing project: canvas tote bag. (You weren't expecting me to say "diamond-studded ball gown", were you??)

I loved your costume!! I have a special interest in the history of the northern plains during the settlement period -approx. 1860's to 1880's and adding the extra material to the bottom of the dress is a very authentic touch. The women always had to make do and use what they had with everything they did!
Good luck with the tote bag. Are you going to put lots of bling on it?? Or go for a more subdued look?

I thought I might do some decoration--low-key bling, ya might say. :)
