I came across the photos of the dress and decided to do it for the midnight release.
This is what I have done so far.
I need to find the ear rings so I can submit it.

That's a great start! Have you found any images of the back of the dress yet? I've been looking but haven't been able to come across any.

Nice start. Smile

But until we have more reference images, I'm not sure we can even judge this yet. Confused As it is right now it will be up to you to submit the needed references with your costume and a lack of the necessary references will mean a denial.
We are all pretty desperate for more references to come up.

I saw it again today. It appears the back does not have any sort of opening, but it is such a quick shot, it's hard to tell.

I've noticed much of the Rebel gear is muted in coloring. Even the bright x-wing Poe's suit isn't truly a bright orange or red, but a softer version of the in between.

I think the soft blue-grey coloring is a good fit for Fisher's hair and skin coloring.

Muted colors were a deliberate choice from the designer. Smile

Btw. I saw it again last night and I noticed only vertical seam lines, that is, a center front, a center back, and side seams. I spotted no horisontal seams, but not sure about the shoulders.
However, I noticed the ring has two blue stones with a navette shaped 'hole' between them. The rest is thick gold/golden thread. It has two threads going around the finger.

Not that we like to rely on figures for references, but that figure does confirm that the dress has a center-front seam and black shoes with clunky heels, like Lora observed. It makes me want to go get the figure, just to get a look at the back.

It would be really easy to fake a center-front seam in your dress that you have already, just pinch in a bit in the front and sew it from the inside.
