Looks wonderful! I love your change of skirt. Just an idea, you mentioned wearing a strapless bra with this dress, how about adding lingerie carriers? It would anchor the dress to your bra straps so you don't have to worry about them peeking out. I think scraps of ribbon work well for this, and here's a tutorial http://sewing.about.com/od/adultclothingprojects/a/brastraphlder.htm

@prostheticsgirl: YES. I've been looking for a good tute for that, thank you! I need to do that with all my dresses, hahaha. :)

Yes, Chickey17, I HATE strapless bras! They're never very comfortable and seem to flatten the shape of my boobs (which aren't large so flattening is no good)! One carrier on each shoulder seem is normally enough, but some dresses need a little more help. This also prevents straps from slipping down, so it's a win-win
