Made my girlfriend a birthday dress. Apart from the mockup I made, it's the first dress I've made before. I made the mistake of buying a cheap pattern with weird sizing issues, so I had to do a lot of alterations, both to the pattern and to the final product.

I drafted a bodice block so that doesn't happen again...

In action.


The back.

Still left to do: add a small clasp at the top of the back, make a hem, do some slipstitching. Happy with the overall dress, just need to take more time getting the size right beforehand.

Also, the ring is done. Proposal imminent.

Married folks of Hubski, how did you propose?

My wife, stoned and giggly one night, talked about how we could have an engagement party at this big campout event we go to.

I said, "Um. Engagement party?"

Her eyes went wide...

And I said, "Did you just propose to me?!?"

Her eyes went wider...

And I said, "Before you say anything else, YES! And YES, I think it would be GREAT to have our engagement party there!"

And we smooched.

(And then went out and bought $10 steel rings. Because if we lose/damage them, it's cheap and easy to replace.)

I won't share the story, as it's a personal one I hold close to my chest, but rest assured, I was deeply and shamefully inebriated. Believe it or not, Dala was none too impressed, but being the smart cookie that she is, she said "yes" anyways.

To continue a developing theme:

She was hung over and had just woken up. I'd actually done it drunkenly the night before, but she didn't appear to remember.

I recommend Disney World.

We drove out to the middle of nowhere to stargaze & watch a meteor shower, and I proposed after a nice bright one. I think I said something dumb about wishing on a on a shooting start while proposing, and she blinked and didn't see that one at all, but she said yes anyway.
