^detail shot :P never mind my wonky sewing, but hey, i haven't been sewing ANYTHING for 3 months so it takes some time to get used to it again! but to be honest... i have missed my sewing machine so much it actually hurts!
^THIS picture shows the colour best: it's very dark blue, almost black. there's dark blue lining on the dress. the fabric is so stiff it doesn't even need tulle underneath to give the hem some lift.
and finally, the seamstress in action!
