Danielle's Navy Dress

Hello!  I missed my usual Sunday post because I was off playing at Dragon*Con, the sci-fi/fantasy convention.  Since I was busy being a geek, I didn't get a chance to make anything new.  I did, however, wear a costume that I made myself.  I think it came from a McCall's pattern, and I modified it a bit.  Instead of a zipper down the back, I put in grommets and laced it up with a coordinating navy ribbon.  The lace and braiding were all hand-stitched, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  In fact, because so many people liked it, and because two of my friends came up with absolutely lovely costumes of their own, now I'm thinking about sewing a new costume for next year.  I'm up for suggestions!
