Typically, I got next to no pictures, but I defend myself that it's hard to hold a drink, a purse, a plate of tiny cakes, and wrangle a camera all at once, while wearing gloves! I made sure to get a couple of my new dress, anyway.
Just a reminder as to what it is - it's loosely based on a c1921 dress in Bradfield's Costume in Detail (what, get up and go look up the page? That sounds like way too much work), adapted to fit my materials. Which are sequin-embellished net (from Joann's. I KNOW), plain net for the sleeves, and a lightweight rayon lining for the slip. All machine sewn except for things like snaps.
And a note on wearing the thing for the first time - I love how the sleeves look, all drapey and dramatic, but OMG do they get caught on everything. Mainly the sequins of the dress, but up to and including a tree.
