So, some of you might recall my entry for last year's Halloween craft challenge...

I was rather unhappy with how it was "finished" (or in this case, not) for a long while. When my husband and I decided to wear them to the opening weekend of the Texas RenFest this past weekend, I knew I had to at least TRY to "fix" my gown.
I added trim and pearls to the forepart (which I adore), finally hemmed the skirt, completely redid the bodice (made it shorter too so it doesn't wrinkle up in the back like it used to) AND made my first french hood (which I like for a first try, but am looking forward to doing better later... and trying my hand at more hats; they're so much fun, you really should try it!).
I promised friends I would take pics at the festival but we got so busy walking around and oohing and aahing over all the goodies and shops (plus we kept getting stopped by a dozen or more people to take photos with them!!) that we forgot to really get more photos of just us. So I just have the one really.
I was pressed for time to finish by this weekend (per usual
) so I don't have any in progress shots either, I just thought I'd share my wee little pic with y'all though. I got loads of compliments at the festival and was even more favorably compared to the "royalty" there (meaning: my outfits were better... lol).
Anywho, enough talk, here's my pic:
C&C Welcome and thanks for looking... again!
