How I got to this point is a VERY long story, but the short version: Way back when, Sue was my dressage trainer and an amateur ballroom dancer. One day I mentioned I sewed. Sue needed a dress for a competition and couldn’t afford the high price tags for a dress. Thus began the long journey to making a dress for her. Being fairly new to California, I did not know a heck of a lot of places to buy fabric, let alone make a ballroom dress. Sadly, the dress was a disaster, due mostly to not following my gut. I learned a lot from this experience.
Sue is going to be competing with her professional partner Victor, at the Emerald Ball in May and she wants to wear my dress!
