|Here she is: the yellow strip'd gown. I'd still like to add|
cuffs and rework the bodice front. I had a lot of overlap at
the waist and barely enough at the bust. eek!

in this photo, but had been beneath for most of the day.
I had some fun fabric shopping (I was able to pick up some nice silk taffeta from Vogue fabrics- maybe for another short sacque?) and picked up a cap and some books while we were at it. I have to admit that I was fairly nervous about the roundtable discussion, but it ended up being pretty cool, I think. Hopefully I didn't talk too much as I tend to do when I'm nervous. =/ I thought the topics chosen by our Lead Moderator were wonderful, and while I was a little disappointed when we weren't able to get through all of them in the time we had I thought that the in depth of the discussion on the topics we were able to touch on was well worth the time.
Overall, my favorite part of the weekend was meeting so many amazing folks for the first time and getting to spend quality time with some of our dearly missed friends.
The most important thing is that I left the weekend feeling full of ideas and inspired for what to do next. I'm also even more excited for my B&T workshops coming up this spring.
So let's do this world!
