I spent this past weekend in Washington, DC, visiting my daughter and taking care of some standard mother/daughter pre-wedding business. We visited my daughter's hairdresser and hit the Bobbi Brown counter at Macy's--all for DIY hair and makeup tips.
Many thanks to Ashleigh at Bang and to the lovely Grace at Macy's.
We enjoyed several great meals, the best of which was prepared by my son-in-law to be. We downed a cocktail or two; we did some power walking in the neighborhood, which includes the DC Zoo. We got pedicures! Good times.
But the main event was the trying-on of the dress, with breath held and fingers crossed. I'm happy to say that things are indeed looking good. One big sigh of relief.
The dress looks rough here--all the seams are hand-basted, and nothing has been pressed. The drapey neckline:
The back. The only real alteration will be to ease in back neckline gappiness that is pinned in this picture.
Feeling pretty good about all this! Of course, now I have just about a month to actually make the dress.
