1940's Dress Complete

After a lot of ups and downs I finally got the dress competed in time for the ball. I was literally hemming it a few hours before we had to leave! Nothing like stressing yourself out with massive time restraints! Here are a few photos of my husband Chris and I at the ball.

The WWII ball was so much fun, Chris and I had a blast. Got to do lots of swing dancing and saw lots of cool retro shows. It really did feel like we had stepped back in time - a magical night and I can't wait until next year already!

Have you been to anything similar? What did you think of the dress? Comment away! 


  1. You did a beautiful job! I was literally hemming my wedding dress about 5 minutes before our wedding last fall, so I can relate. You look great!

    1. Thanks Melissa! I think a wedding dress is much more stressful - hope you got it finished in time :-)

  2. The dress is lovely! I think we've all been there with the last-minute sewing dash--as long as it's done in time, no big deal, right?

    1. Thanks Lenora! Yeah I think the last minute sewing is a regular occurance! I guess it adds excitement to sewing projects leaving it to the last minute :-)

  3. This dress is beautiful! You did a wonderful job!
