John has a ball in March. Supposedly. It was supposed to be this weekend, but it got moved, so I have more time to pick out a dress.

Or make one, I suppose. I do have some patterns, and I've got some ideas, but one of the things I've always wanted to make is a corset ballgown. You know, the kind with teh full skirt and the corset top...only I want mine with a bolero jacket that has an inverted V in the back, so you can see the corset lacing. I want it in a striking deep red, or a gorgeous irridescent taffeta.

I'm nuts. Like I have the damn time to learn to make a corset, then sew a skirt, and a jacket. The Best Friend of Awesomeness and Kittens is awesome, but I think she'd draw the line *somewhere* and since she's already agreed to help design and build a pergola this winter, I'm a bit hesitant to ask her to help...because it'd be mostly her doing the work while I sit around being a lump. Well, an ironing lump, but a lump. So I'll probably just end up ordering a dress online, and I've seen a few that are STUNNING, so we'll see how it works out.
