Well, I got a fantastic stomach issue last week (food poisoning, I think, but possibly some sort of bug), which had me laid out for 3 days, and I was forced to miss the first night of the Edwardian Ball. I did manage to peel myself out of bed long enough to attend last night. I wanted to trim out the skirt (still on the to do list), but could not manage to perfect pleat for hours on end, so I gave it up and went mostly awesome instead of totally awesome. :-)
I present to you, my first full costume ever, from foundation garments to first wear!

If you'd like to look through my Edwardian ball full set, please do feel free to check out the set I created on Flickr. Many incredible costumes were admired that night!
Shout out to my pal Noelle for helping get me started with the polonaise and sharing all of her wisdom and comfort with me!
