Cary W. Tucker developed a passion for social dance in 1999. It is a hobby that turned out to be synergistic with writing poetry, with many Muses arising among the ladies he met out dancing. “I Make the Gowns” was prompted by several women he knows who like to frequent costumed dances such as the Gaskell Ball and who have proven to be not only fine dancers but also exquisite dressmakers.
