The one post that people view on my blog carries the title Army Ball. A friend in Australia just mentioned she would be attending the Army Ball in Darwin this coming August. I was interested to hear about her gown. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to search back and look at the gowns I have worn over the years. Unfortunately, I only have 4 years available in digital version. The other 2 years, I wore black gowns. The first time I attended an Army Ball (any ball for that matter), I wore a 2 piece black gown with lace and sequin top and heavy satin bottom with a small train. The following year, I wore a borrowed black gown which had spaghetti straps to which I added a small black satin and pearl bow. Since then, my dresses have been brown, navy and champagne. I’ve worn the brown dress 3 times, with different accessories, most recently with a vintage style coat I made for this year’s theme, 1914. I think I will retire that one soon as it doesn’t seem to have much of a shape anymore. Or maybe I am the one who is losing her shape?
