I made this dress especially to wear to a Melbourne Cup lunch. Its made from green organza with french seams. I got the material at Vinnies (Op Shop) for $5.00 some time ago. I made the fascinator to match. I backed the winner of the Melbourne Cup which was called Green Moon. I chose to back this horse as my dress was green and my fascinator is round like the moon. It was a fun day!

Material Notes

Green organza.

      Thanks. The winning horse was ‘Green Moon’. Hopefully my outfit may make the local newspaper (The Mercury) as I was photographed at the lunch with another girl who also made her own fascinator.
