I tried and tried to display it bigger.
The top left photo is me falling in heels and is embarrassing but funny.
The bottom left shows the pleating and the casing at the top for the strap. The gray band is knit. My friend Camile gave me this fabric. She had a ton from a fabric closeout sale and it sat in her closet for 3 years.
This is the dress pic alone for a better look.
