That's right, people. My Laguna dress got placed in the 2nd place at Orange County Fair 2011! My husband and I went to check it out today and there it was in the Home Arts & Crafts exhibit wing: Laguna dress.
I entered in the Original Design category and since I already had the dress made and never wore it, I had no problem meeting the deadline.
The fair was wonderful this year, I might share some pictures later.
