Persona Pentathlon?

My silk has shipped from Denver Fabrics. Yay!

Yeah, I had said that I would take a couple of weeks off from costuming, after the Neverending Dress for Cat.

Alas, it was not to be.

All of a sudden, I had an epiphany and figured out exactly how I wanted to make my dress. (Plus I want a new gown for KASF). Hence, the order from Denver Fabrics.

And speaking of KASF. I am really torn between entering or not in the Persona Pentathlon.

Last year I promised to myself that I would dedicate all year to work on that so, by the time KASF 2006 happened, I would have this kickass array of stuff and documentation ready. Instead, I spent most of my year in other unrelated -- albeit fun and quite educational -- projects, with the result that I don't know if I have what I really need to enter said competition.

What can I say? I am easily disctracted. Particularly if an interesting dress -- or gloves, or whatever -- is involved. Whether for myself or someone else doesn't matter. As soon as I find a nifty project, I go into ferret shock.

At any rate, I will be making my nifty silk gown for KASF. If I finish it on time, I may even enter it. If not, well, there is always next year.

And of course, I will be crashing the performing competition.

Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse.

No rest for the wicked.

Enter! Enter! Join Mel and I in the craziness.

Oh wait, *mutter* *mutter* *Bel's stuff is really pretty* on second thought, nah, don't enter... ;-)

Oh fine. Leave her to sweep the floor with me in the vocal performance competition. ;)

There's a reason she is the Belfabulous one.

Coming to a competition near you! ROTFL. You may have convinced me. Hmmmmm . . .

I've been promising to enter the pentathlon for two years but, like you, keep getting wrapped up in fascinating projects that don't lend themselves to that kind of competition. One day, I really will enter.

I'll make you the same offer I've made several friends and one apprentice - if you want feedback, advice, consultation, etc. just holler!

But you should definitely enter!

(And what's the new silk/new gown???!)

Thanks for the offer! The gown is a French dress, with a lot of Italian influence, after a drawing of the Princesse de Condé. I will scan it and post it here :-)

Really nice. It has the mutton-leg sleeves very popular in France, but with the high, open neck popular in Italy. Quite flattering. The fabric is a burgundy silk charmeuse.
