I think this dress is perfectly suited for a very subdued luau! The fabric is cotton sateen from JoAnns.
The lining is cotton batiste. Et voila, the insides. Sorries for the wrinkles and the bad lighting.
And finally, a happy dog shot. I like photos of me and my dog far more than photos of just me, even when they don't show my sewing efforts to particularly good advantage. Though perhaps you can tell that there's not much gapping at the neckline even though I am leaning forward, which is a Good Thing. Also, you probably figured it out already, but my dog is amazing!
In other irrelevant news, we put out our Halloween decorations! We kept it low-key because that seems to be what the neighbors are doing. We are new, we want to fit in. :) I've actually had the skelemingos for years with nowhere to put them. Hooray for finally having a yard! (Next step ... have something growing in the flower beds instead of just mulch, lol.)
