|navy blue cotton denim velveteen, red linen|
sleeve linings, red microfiber half-sleeves
gold drapery tapestry fabric trim. The overall
look was inspired in part by this.
|the deep-V back, which I am trying out here|
for the first time, and which I adore; and the
long train, which I forgot to arrange nicely
for this picture, lol.
Tada! I have GOT to start making sure someone photographs me at events. I swear. Maybe nobody likes me. ;0)
I ended up using some "gold" and "crystal" (both plastic) buttons that I pulled off a pair of fancy half-sleeves, for this dress. As soon as I find something for this dress I like better (and can afford. Holy cow, buttons are expensive now that my discount place closed down!), these crystal buttons are going back onto the sleeves, because I like them better there.
