I have no pics of me IN the dress yet, because I'm still getting together the rest of the outfit - hair, accessories, under-bits. I have it all in my head, but I haven't done a major test-run yet.
I'll definitely have pics after Saturday though; and it's entirely likely I'll also have video of me performing for Bardic, and/or performing in the dance that opens the feast! EEP!
The skirt of the dress is split on the right side, and drapes up to the left hip where it's secured there by a brooch...of which I have no pics. Yet.
Back neckline, slightly V-shaped, embroidery enlarged and graduated just a bit to accentuate the dip.
One of my favorite things about this dress? It was crazy cheap to make:
- 2 Ikea curtain panels, clearance $10/ea
- "silver" (plastic) and "pearl" buttons: $4/dozen
- green silk suit lining, clearance $2
- glittering and glowing in the candlelight at my favorite event: PRICELESS
Yup. The whole thing cost me about $26. ^_^
