I've been quite busy over here working on the dress because I have to clean up our back bedroom for some houseguests this weekend. The place is a disaster with a capital "D" and yet so wonderfully reminiscent of the architecture studios from college. To this day I contend good work is stifled if you constantly have to tidy up!
The room has also been declared a no food, no drink, no dog, and no man zone following an incident last week where I left the dress out unattended and Matt came home, only to see it in plain view. Damn. So much for that tradition! I also had a scare yesterday when I tried on the dress right after getting out of the shower in order to check hem length. My intentions were good: shower fresh with no lotions or potions to spoil the fabric. Unfortunately, my razor was not. A small unseen knick on the back of my leg left a few drops of blood on the dress. You can only imagine my horror upon discovering this, I'm sure. Thankfully it was contained mostly to the underlining (I heart underlining, by the way) and I was able to do damage control. There is the tiniest spot on the outside of the dress but I am hopeful no one but me will ever notice. Plus, a pre-wedding dry cleaning might make this all moot. I hope. Please. For the love of God.
Anyway, the place is a mess because there's been a lot of good work going on. I will post more today with dress pictures during dog nap time.
