I designed and hand-sewed this as intended as a 'going away' dress for my wedding, before I figured out that I wouldn't have a chance to change into and use it that day.  I still love it, though I intend to fix the back of the skirt as I'm not a fan of that at all.

The lace and the arrangement thereof were taken from an old slip.

Check out more of about this and of my other work on my blog! http://arsgratiaartis-shalyn.blogspot.com/

Ooo it's so lovely, I think it would look great with some short gloves!

Definitely keep it on hand! Maybe you can wear it on your honeymoon. As for the back, I don't know why you'd want to change it. The bow and closure look great!

It's adorable! The color and the shine (I guess the fabric is satin?) are just beautiful!

This is just gorgeous!  And, you hand-sewed it?  Wow, I am always impressed with people who are patient enough to do that!  And, I agree with duckiedarling that the dress looks lovely the way it is...and you look great in it, btw! Great job!!  Cheesy
