The Blackpool dress is also a winner!

10 Feb

Our trip to the sunny south was a rousing success in every way, except perhaps, the fact that we had to come home to the rain.  But two gold, one silver and one bronze is pretty good, even in a small field.

Lessons with Victor Fung and Anastasia were a HUGE highlight!  Plus Disney, the beach, a taping of Leno and ultimately, a shopping spree in the LA Fashion District, the fabric area, in particular.  A burn test just confirmed that the silk chiffon I got for $6.50 a yard (thanks to some shrewd bargaining by Denise) is indeed silk.  Hurray!  I sure was not about to take it back…

Here are the colours of the next gown:

    Congrats on your “rousing success!” How exciting to get coaching with Victor and Anastasia! New fabric for the dress looks lovely! Keep up the great work. -Stef

      Thanks Stef – since you are in Phoenix, were you at the southwest regionals last year? We brought a Canadian and Pacific Northwest contingent there and have decided to make it an annual thing. Nice to escape the rain for a week!
