GEL dress picture
Here's the first of the several photos taken of the dress I made for and wore to the GEL 2006 conference … thanks very much to Laura (of 15secondpitch.com) for taking it and sending it to me! (I especially like the obvious #2 pencil sticking out of my yellow Luella-for-Target bag.) There's another picture, too, taken by Martin Hardee of Sun, up at his blog.

This dress is is the same dress, in a different fabric, that I made in late March, which is a slight variation of the original pattern, which I blogged about in early March, which is the the pattern I bought in January, after swearing I wouldn't. I am nothing if not obsessive. (Thanks to Francis for egging me on to buy the pattern in the first place.)

Also, today is my one-year blogiversary! Yes, 366 posts ago, I started blogging about dresses. And then you started reading! I originally thought that about five and a half people would read this blog (which was fine by me) but as many as THREE THOUSAND folks have come by on any given day … thanks so much for all the great comments, all the links to breathtaking dresses, and especially for all the kind words and encouragement over the past year.

Stay tuned for more dresses, fabric, Jack Purcell sneakers, and Secret Histories … watch this space.
