here are the rest


the one named "myinbox" is how AA will see it when she gets it. ;p
trust me it looks better on a body then on my dummy. and I didn't realize it till a few mins ago that the right side (as if you were in the dress) was lower then the left side so i had to do a slight adjust ments and since I already trimed the seams I had to add, inperson its not lopsided nor is it jaged lke in the pics... now its quite hard to tell that ther is a differnce, it just needs to be washed and ironed. :) but forgive Gertie shes not the right size (but me and AA are only silightly different in measurements dispite what AA says) and the dress is NOT photogenic! but I'm also thinking that I might add some beads on the edges of the sleeves to add some weight to it... but AA came home earlier then I thought (1 hour early!)so I was in the process of doing little things to the dress (hadn't taken a shower yet) the I heard the car door and it was like "oh shit!" *runs to window* "shit!" runs to Gertie, rips off the dress, (Gertie is in the middle of my room) *shoves dress in box into my closet, runs back to Gertie (I can hear them walking past the window) lowers her to "my" height, grabs her little things fly off her so I put them back on (I can hear the door opening) runs back into bathroom with clothes gets the towels and turns on the water..... "oops!" I forgot to move Gertie......* and taht was how that was, luckly she fell for the "I was seeing what fabric I had (it lives behind Gertie) and re-oranizing my desk drawrs (explains the stuff everywhere). so thats good and now I have bad but I have them pics of the b-day present!

the fabric for this dress is the beaded embroidered silk chiffon from exclusive silks on ebay, the lininf is silk dupioni from dharma, the neck facing is silk organza from dharma, the beads at the top are "celyon" whit beads size 0/8 from cartwrights.

As far as the secret goes..... I have palnned taht when i get pais I'll order the gladdy fabric, then the next week order the pearls (10-20 of them so that will be about 25 bucks, and if i need it I'll order more bullion.... but we'll see. so... but all hangs on this paycheck. then 200 bucks out for gladdy fabric. and 125 for the fabric (dye too!) and pearls. I've got to get the dye for the trim!
