Heather’s Ballgown – I love the ribbon trim!

Dear Mrs. Chancey,

I made this dress using your Simplicity pattern. My English Country Dance group was having a ball, and I needed a new dress. I started the dress on the 11th, and the ball was on the 15th! I used a cream colored satin and organdy, and my mom hand embroidered the overlay with little green flowers. And on that fabric, it’s TOUGH! I finished the dress 2 hours before the ball, and I had a lot of fun making and wearing it! ~ Heather

This is wonderful work, Heather! I love your ribbon trim and the overskirt. Your mom gets huge kudos for the embroidery as well. Fantastic!
