So, got up my gumption and registered as a reenactor of the Hale Farm Civil War days in August. (11,12). Now, on the 12th they have a Ball, which I would very much like to go to. No escort, as my kid is working,and hubby has not interest. I do not have a ball gown. I could, maybe, create a Ball gown style Bodice to “go” with the bodice and skirt I am currently making. I’m not sure if I have enough material to make a matching sleeveless bodice. What I thought I might do is see if I can find some fabric that would compliment what I have, and just whip up something. Trim it out with some really wide lace. Tah-dah?? Of course I have no idea how I would get someone to lace/hook me up, but I bet I could find someone. I’m not shy. I’m not staying overnight, as the venue isn’t tooo far away.
