My mom finally finished my dress and sent it out. It arrived this morning. It's a bit wrinkled (sitting in the bathroom with a steamy shower running right now) but otherwise it's fantastic. It fits perfectly.

The pictures are bad. No one's around today to take them for me.



There's a pleat in the back, and it's lined with...


Dragonflies!



Me in the dress, sort of:


It's Vera Wang for Vogue:


It's made with undyed silk/linen blend and silk/rayon brocade, purchased for a very reasonable price at Thai Silks.

It looks very pretty!

Does that steamy shower actually work?

It works best with 100% silk. After about an hour in the bathroom most of the wrinkles were out (I feel bad that I wasted so much hot water, but I did spend a few minutes actually taking a shower). My mom will be able to get the rest out with a hand steamer.
