Desperation = Invention

Here are additional pictures of my quick and desperate attempt to save the dress.  You can see more of the skirt which has been covered.

Interestingly, depending on the light, the contrasting whites do not look so bad together.  There is a place in my house where they absolutely work and places they clash.


I can see that I tied the ties too tight.  The bottom ties should be loser.  An easy fix at least.

I find the dress absolutely wonderful!

Rosy, thank you so much! Even though it was not at all how I envisioned the dress, I am super happy with the result.

I think sometimes the seamstress can be the worst critic of a dress - from here it looks fantastic! (Gorgeous fabric and I really can't see too much of a colour difference at all!)

Thank you!

I completely agree that the seamstress is the worst critic of their creation - they have the intimate knowledge of what went wrong and what went right!

I wish I could invite everyone over for a quick look at the color difference. It is not noticible in the photos but in person...can you say neon light!
