This is the first thing I've finished for myself, and I really like how it turned out. I'm planning on wearing this to a wedding, so constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated before I wear it out in public. Smiley

The full shot (you can't see them too well, but there are small fabric roses made from the same gauze material as the dress, sewn onto random areas of the bodice):



Detail of front (I know it's sort of hard to see with my bad lighting, sorry!)



Back (There are roses here too, on the left side, hard to see):



Thanks for looking!

It looks like a great dress, but it's hard to post any constructive criticism about the dress because of the quality of the pictures (and the fact that it's black. It's a lot more difficult to get a good detail picture of something black). I know it's not always easy to get good pictures (my old camera was awful for small objects).  I do think you'd get more comments if you had better pictures, as the dress looks great from what I can see.  I hope you enjoy the wedding!

Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I also wish the pics showed more detail. I love the idea of black on black roses

I like it! Especially the roses.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Even with the bad lighting it still looks great. I love the belt detail.

I think it's very cute!  Grin  It is hard to see the detail, but I can see well enough to know that I think the extra little details go a long way on such a simple little dress.  I have just found my love for halter necks, and I think this is perfect for a summer wedding!
