Yes, a lovely dress.

I am impressed by the fit, is really looks like a second skin. How did you manage this? The weight of my polonaise pulls the back outwards, making my waist look bigger.

I really like the corset too, it is so sweet and simple.

Thanks!

I went through several mock-ups to make sure the fit was good. The end result is that there is just enough room to button the button at the waist which keeps it from moving.

Also, the fabrics themselves are very light, it's silk dupoini flatlined to silk organza.

I'm glad you took some detail pictures. The embroidery is lovely and I would have totally missed it otherwise.

I thought it was a nice touch to break up all the white. It's actually from an embroidered organza I had left over from an earlier project. I cut it out the embroidery and then sewed it on by hand.
