Curtain dress meetup time

"Women in matching dresses" from Retronat
Thank-you so much to those of you who voted in my Curtain-Along at Costume College poll!  There was only one person who had a conflict with 11 on Saturday, and I apologize to whoever that person was, but we are going to go with that time.  So I hope to see some of you at the outside lounge area at 11:00 on Saturday morning!

Honestly, the main purpose of the meetup time is just so we can get some pictures of a group of us in our Curtain-Along dresses.  I am totally addicted to crazy photos ops (see exhibit A and exhibit B for starters), and the thought of taking pics of a bunch of ladies in semi-matching curtain dresses in one place at one time makes me a little giddy with joy.  But it is also totally cool if:
A. You can't make it to the 11 meetup, but you still wear your dress on Saturday so we can geek out with other Curtain-Alongers as we run into each other between classes.
B. You come say hi at the Saturday photo-op meetup even if you are not wearing a Curtain-Along outfit.
C. Choose to wear your Curtain-Along dress at some other point in the weekend.

I think Lauren from American Duchess was wanting to wear her Curtain-Along dress to the Ice Cream Social, so if that works better for you, then that might be another time to get a little group together in curtain dresses.  So no worries, and feel free to do whatever works best for you.  :)

I can't wait to see all of your Curtain-Along masterpieces at Costume College!

Sounds great! I am working on Curtain dress #2, a 1790s round gown, and it'll be a much easier style to wear for day, before the Gala, so I will see you at the meet-up afterall :-) Hope nobody thinks it's weird to wear two different dresses in similar fabrics back-to-back...

Lauren - that's awesome! I'm so excited that we'll get to see both of your dresses. I don't think its weird at all. :)
