Hi all! I made the blue night dress for fun, and am thinking about possibly remaking it in the future for RL standards. Can I just get some feedback on it? I really enjoyed wearing it, and it was surprisingly comfortable! Link to google album here:

I don't have any pics of just me, so enjoy my Darth Phantom (of the opera) as well.

The stitching was all done by hand, as well as the bottom hem.

Your link is not working. It shows error 404. Maybe it's only for me, but you could try to check it once again.

I saw your progress on this in the Padme group and you have done an absolutely phenomenal job on it. You look amazing. If you are happy with it, keep it as is. If you want it for RL, then there may be a few things you may need to fix but submit it and see. It could be nothing needs altering at all. Either way, absolutely beautiful work!

Omg. That means so much to me you have no idea. I definitely want to fix the top up a bit, but other than that I feel pretty good about it. Is there a way to view approved costumes to compare it to? My only other concern is the back drape, but I feel like if I readjust and recenter it on my dress form rather than my own body, it would look way better.

Hello Alphie33

You work is great, if you want to submit it you'll need to have the back jewelry, may be the cap is a bit too long ? Can't see really on your photos.
You need to "look pregnant".
Don't hesitate to post others photos (details shots) so we can help you to spot out the little things you need to change.

From what I can see you have done some nice work on this. Smile

I'd mostly be concerned about the puckering along the faggot stitching and the 'waterfall' on the back. Definitely see if you can straighten that out so it looks neater.
I also think the strings of pearls are a bit long, so you could shorten them a bit.
And as Yumi said, there's the missing pearls on the back and the pregnancy bump.

But don't worry; the faggot stitching on the back is optional, so you don't have to add any more of that to the gown. Wink

Good luck with it and let us know if there's anything we can help you with.
