I love that all the pieces have come together with some very determined hand stitching: hem, bodice, buttons and hooks.
These gloves (Carol's suggestion) are long but I've kept them short for these pictures. I'm not sure what the style police would say but I'm sure I would get a warning for my sense of style. Bring on the garden party.
The self-cover buttons I had in my stash were too small for me to deal with at 11pm last night but I found three small round buttons with an edge to them until I can find some nice white pearl shank buttons. I'll also look for blue ones too - thanks Sheila.
And this is probably how I'd look at the end of a long debute party or garden party.
It's Anzac Day (Lest we forget) and the weather is now starting to cool down so I think that's it for warm weather clothing.
