Last night was Geelong Malanka, (a Ukrainian New Years Eve celebration). This Malanka party is fairly relaxed & so the dress code is more semi-formal, the girls tend to wear short party dresses & the boys in a nice shirt & tie or maybe a suit. This is the dress I wore, these pics were taken in the hotel before we left.
I bought the sequined & embroidered lace when I was in Shenzhen last August. Given the fairly ostentatious design of the lace I wanted to have something fairly simple, so I went with as 60s style mini shift dress.
In order to get the pattern matching up (somewhat) at the seams & darts I had to do a bit of applique work. For instance in the picture below half of the blue flower was originally trapped in the dart. It looked really weird so I cut out the flower from another bit of lace and hand-stitched it in place.

Lace is an embroidered & sequined tulle.
