Finished enough to wear to the Black and White tea anyway! Embarrassingly enough there were still some pins stuck in it - I haven't been this last minute for a costume in a while! But it was done enough to wear and hopefully some of the safety pins and just-tacked-on stuff will be resolved by the time I wear it again at Costume College. I'm thinking the ice cream social might be a fun place to wear such a floofy dress...I also never did get my hat to work how I wanted it to, so I added some white ribbons and feathers to a black little perchy hat I got at H & M this past winter.
Everyone looked wonderful at the tea! There were many gorgeous 1900s-19teens things and even a few other black and white bustle gowns! You can see all the lovely ladies here.
