      Thanks :) Sadly the dress was ruined after just one wearing (not that it’s something she would likely wear often). The lace overlay caught so easily on everything – shoes, jewelry, furniture etc. :(

      Thanks! :) It was supposed to be strapless, but even though it fit very snugly, the weight of it pulled it down so much that I had to fashion a halter strap to keep it from embarrassing her.
