I made this dress half a year ago. For a ball. In the middle of winter. Yes this summery, light, floral, pink dress for a winter ball. It was a bit crazy go and it was the only light dress there so I really stood out and got loads of compliments on it. Score! :)
I did not wear the headpeace then. My hair was much shorter and it looked too costumey, so I bought a sort of golden rose for an accessory. I think I would wear it now though.
It has hand picked zipper with pearls. Hand sewn hem.
Also I made an underskirt. The dress had too much of a summery, beachy feel without it.
