Skirting the issue.

Some insight into why I am so slavishly devoted to the lovely Angela of Mode Merr (the maker of my Bridal Skirt, and the auteur of a solid portion of my wardrobe).

"Here are some fun facts:

So far there are 64 yards of fabric in your skirt, Top layer with flames, 4 layers of tulle, 1 layer of wide eye net for extra poofage, 1 slipper satin petticoat with the shiney side in for an ultra lux interior! I may add a few more layers before I am through. I attach the under layers about 3 inches down from the waist band to eliminate bulk. I am assisted in this wonderful project by Gisele. She is a talented seamstress from France with over 60 years of bridal construction. Gisele is the the best."

The word "poofage" made my head fall off from joy. I may be decapitated, but oh, what a large and lovely skirt I'll have at my funeral.
