It’s a little late, but pictures of the dress as promised. Unironed, straight from the suitcase. I really do like it, but the dress and I… well… we need a little time apart. Just a little break, then I’ll be finding any excuse to wear again.
I ended up making the wrap as well (a length of satin-backed crepe, folded in half, seamed and top-stitched to make it tidy), because I couldn’t find a top to go with the dress. The pin, on the other hand, I’ve had for years. I originally intended to make it into a hair pin, but I never did so it’s stayed tucked in my drawer, waiting for the right occasion.
