The neckline and sleeves are trimmed in navy blue. There was originally going to be a wide band of the same color around the bottom of the dress, until I started putting it together and discovered that I'd neglected to cut out *one* of the trim pieces, and was out of fabric. Fail.
It's hard to see in this picture (phone + mirror = not a great combo), but the buttons are arranged in groups of three. In between each set is a hidden hook & eye.
This is going to be my outfit for Yule Revel.
If I get time between now and then, I'm going to make myself a liripipe hood to wear with this.
