Hey guys!

My senatorial gown just came in! So I wanted to take pictures of my mini "fitting" to get some feedback! I feel like its pretty accurate but just need some feedback and any suggestions!

I also just used my phone to take pictures since I didn't have my professional camera with me at the moment.

My belt has just shipped and hopefully it is accurate as well, if not I think I can manage making one myself now that I have a sewing machine. So this time I just used a small belt I had on hand. I'm also working on my boots! So I hope to have them done by next week!

From what I can see you're looking good! I think another hook-and-eye at the bottom of your collar would help your collar and keyhole lay more nicely.

Also, you might want to consider wearing a flesh-toned bra with this dress. Your white bra is shining through a little bit.

How is the length on you?

I will have to pick up some hook and eyes! The length is perfect, I believe. It hardly touches the ground without the belt and hits at about my ankle with the belt. I will be getting a flesh toned bra, I figured that one would be too bright lol. I also will probably get some nude spanx to wear under it as well.
My official belt should be here tomorrow! Very Happy

Also here are the boots I ordered and had to do some alterations to, I hope they are still approvable! I just had to add elastic into the inside of the leg to give it some stretch! The front view picture looks like they aren't the same height, but the I had put a shoe horn in one of them and forgot to put the other in before taking pictures.

Your boots look lovely. You hid the elastic neatly inside the leg.

It's looking pretty good. Buns take a lot of practice, hair pins, and hair spray. You may even want to look into thin, blond hair nets to keep things in place. Wrapping your own natural hair in with the buns may also help keep the fake hair in place, and help the blend of colors. Right now your buns seem a lot lighter than the rest of your hair.

I still think an extra hook-and-eye at the base of your collar will help. Wink

I actually do have my natural hair wrapped into them! Lol. I have the ombré/bayalage hair color so the ends of my hair actually match the fake hair perfectly, the top of my head is just a bit darker.

Any clue where I can pick up some thin hair nets? I'll be grabbing the extra hook and eye today.

Usually someplace like Sally's Beauty Supply has something like that. Just make sure that they are blond so we can't see them from a distance. You may be able to find some online if that fails.

Alright! I went to Sally's today and was able to find some hair nets and some really sturdy bobby pins! I think I was able to get the buns more even this go around! And I got my 3rd hook and eye sewn into my dress! I took some pictures. Hopefully it looks better!
