Alabama Chanin Beaded Mardi Gras Dress - The Pictorial




The front.


The back.


Haven't quite finished beading and trimming the very bottom...


Swingy skirt...


with plenty of walkability.





And finally, an attempt at an AC-style photo. Didn't go barefooted, though.


Oh yeah, the fabulous photography didn't quite happen because the nice camera save the pics in a file we couldn't open, so these are with my iPhone - bleh. At least they're in focus - the probability of getting a nice photo in the Superdome that's in focus is low...very low.

Beautiful dress. I'll be in the quarter Friday at the Iris luncheon and then on to the Elvi. If I see you in the see of people I'll say hi!

Make that sea of people!

WOW! That was worth the wait -- what a wonderful job you did with the beading -- what style! I love it and I think it looks lovely on you--especially the fit!

Junior - I can only aspire to Mattie Bell's greatness as a seamstress.

Robbie - thank you! (I already cut out another T-shirt to wear to Pure Barre while having insomnia the other night...)

Eileen - What will you be wearing? I'll look for you! I'll be somewhere between Lafitte's (dancing) and Mama's (eating a burger) Friday afternoon and evening...

Pam - thank you - it was worth 3 months' of trouble!
