but I still want to do it! My CoCo sum up.

I had a fabulous time at Costume College this year.  Even a whole month later it is still brings a stupid smile to my face. Even with the stress of an impending TDY, horribly swollen ankles, and a near gala melt down, I can still say Fabulous time. I think it shows in just my anxiety levels. Last year I had a full out anxiety attack that my hubby had to talk me out of and I was near one several times. This year there were two times that I got to the stage of shaky, escalated heart rate, and tearing up/crying. The first one was Wednesday night. I couldn't figure out why but I knew the signs so I called my hubby. That man knows me to well... He told me,  that I was probably just getting overwhelmed. I had spent most the day traveling, 3 hours of which were on the 405 in construction traffic. After a good nights sleep I would be fine. And he was right. We even drove around the next day and I didn't have any problems at all.
Thursday we went.... )

This took way to long due to a slow computer and internet!!!!!!!!!! I retabbed the pages in my blog for the costumes. The actual pages are more manageable now. I also added a post for the 18th C. Barbie aka Casaque gown.
Now to take a shower, fold laundry and iron uniforms... fun....

Need opinions/advice/another set of eyes!!!! This is the trim on my gala gown. I love it. Hubby hates it. He said "it's just all bunched up." Uhhhhh........ ????????????
So I am going for 18thc flooffy (is that a word??) am I on the right track or did I miss the mark and go gaudy or "it's just all bunched up"

Did finish the hem, and sewing down the neck facing. All that's left is this trim.
