At last I can say that I've been to the Melbourne Cup. They came from far and wide across the nation to stop and enjoy the many aspects of horse racing. I was entertained all day by fabulous fashions (in which I will dedicate a post or two to), fine fillies, live music and of course the atmosphere and company of 110,000 people. In a previous post, I showed some fabrics that I bought recently and at the time, I wasn't really sure what to do with them. But over the last few weekends, I gradually pulled this dress together. I wasn't even sure if I would finish in time, so I actually didn't buy a ticket to the Cup until last Thursday and purchased my accessories on Sunday and Monday. Talk about leaving it to the last minute. But in the end, I was pretty happy with the final result.
