NewLook 6292 tunic top had just been cut out and it was decided then and there, that this event was so very special, it deserved a new complete outfit to wear for that day. And if that wasn't enough.... when the top and leggings/skinny pants were complete, I realized all my handbags are huge and I really needed a Crossbody type of bag because there's a LOT of walking at the Biltmore. So..... I made a new Crossbody Bag. Perfectly perfect. Little did I know my outfit and bag would match Biltmore's Guide Book. Anyway, I'll write a post of all these details at a later date as this one is all about the Biltmore.
