I was asked to help emcee the annual style showcase of our local chapter of the American Sewing Guild, and wore this to the event. I was bowled over by the creativity and skill shown by the participants, who created everything from flirty sundresses to coats crafted from hand-dyed faribault blankets.

As you can see, it was incredibly foggy that morning, which made for some dramatic photos!

I have two thoughts about emceeing: The first is how strange it is that the term was originally short for “master of ceremonies” but has somehow morphed into a phonetic spelling of its abbreviation. The second is that the first “person” to whom I heard the term applied was Kermit the Frog. I think of him as the ultimate emcee. Or MC. Take your pick.

    How absolutely magnificent!!!

    I haven’t enough exclamation marks to say how splendid you make this outfit look. Wow.

    The seaming on that dress is incredible. Definitely a spook-tacular look to set against your foggy background.

    Great outfit! I love the necklace. I checked out GemPearls (the maker of your necklace) at Etsy. Do you have any suggestions for how large-busted women can wear statement jewelry like that, or what types of statement jewelry they should wear? Somehow I don’t think that necklace would hang as well on me as it does on you. I get a little tired of wearing shorter things.
