Your mom blasts in the high-fashion sewing department! And real silk, too-- makes all the difference.

Off topic-- I posted Part 1 of that Competency Model meme on my blog if you'd like to play. We're dealing with organizational skills!

Thanks Guys. Props appreciated. The silk was VERY hard to hem. The one I'm doing now is cotton and will not present the agony the silk did. Did you know that you have to hang a bias cut garment for 24 hours to let the thing settle into it's final length? I didn't, but now I do.

That is really a gorgeous outfit.

I'm going to be haunted by the headlessness of it all though....
