As usual, there is more to do on this gown, but it is wearable for this weekend's competition.

Check out the photos!

All that remains is the floats, a tuck here and there, a few trillion more stones, make up, hair, and hope like heck my tricky leg is ready to dance on. So practically finished!

Yet another gorgeous gown -- good luck at the competition. Sure hope your leg is doing better.

Look forward to seeing the gown "in action."

You look gorgeous in it.

I think that's the biggest test of a successful project - do you wear it or does it wear you?

The gown is gorgeous too of course.

Beautiful gown! I love the design of the stones and the gown...and most importantly, it looks great on you! Good luck at the competition! I didn't know you have a bum leg.. I hope it holds out for you.
