Under the Wire

Whew, there are two contests I wanted to enter this dress in and I just got it done just in time - then almost didn't have time to do a post so that I could enter them!

I'll do a longer follow up about the final stages tomorrow, but WAH-LA! It is finally finished!


Can you tell I am just a little bit excited?




And it was worth it in the end, as I LOVE my Elisalex dress and plan to wear it as much as possible all summer long.

I love the print, the piping (oh, can't see it? Here it is again) . . .


And the shoes!


I ordered these from ebay and they were delivered one minute after I stopped taking photographs because it started to rain. Yeesh. I'll get more pictures this weekend of the innards and the dress with the shoes.

Thanks for cheering me along as I tackled this dress!

    1. Thanks, Rhonda! I got so lucky with these. I've been watching them on Zappos but they cost $130 - way outside my budget right now. I checked on ebay earlier in the week and found an almost-new pair in my size for $40! How's that for lucky??

    1. You will finish it and it will ROCK! But I understand the need to wait - when I put this down back in the fall, I thought I'd never want to see it again!
