The dress turned out beautifully. And I love the sepia-toned photo. I think I might do that with my entry as well. Makes it look perfect! Where did you take the photos? The building is really neat,and the gardens are a perfect photo-opp spot!

Great job! Your photo shoot is amazing, but the dress really stands on its own. Your fabric choice and belt are perfect. Yes, it's vintage but also perfetly up-to-date, too! You look wonderful in your dress. Enjoy!
