Regency Ballgown . . .

A few people requested pics of me in the dress, so here ya go. These are not fabulous; I was very tired and these were taken at about 10pm last night, but they're not that bad for all that.

I like the turban, but it might benefit from some orange in it. It seems to need something. Maybe I'm just being thrown off by the fact that my hair is not done in the correct style for it.

For B: the sleeves. Very simple, but they worked well with this dress. They are simply gathered by a tab and secured at the shoulder with a small gold filigree button.

What do you think, dear readers?

I think adding orange to the turban would be very "garanimals" matchy. I like the richess of the blue!

Awesome colour! I love the sleeves. And yes, I think the turban would look good with some orange.

Fabulous! So much better than on the dressform ;)
I have to admit I like the turban as is, simple and the color looks so nice with your hair.
