I finished my 3rd Summer Deco dress just in time for my birthday and the June Gaskell Ball! It was a grand time. The ball and the dress were a success. A little informal group of us decided to forgoe the Gaskell Ball's usual giant hoop-era style and opted instead for 1930's. It was an elegant change of pace.

Everyone looked awesome! Especially Sam's vintage blazer!

The construction was pretty simple, yet did have to be changed a bit from the mockup. There were a couple mistakes that I managed to deal with and I'm very happy with the result. The yoke took some interesting fiddling!
I am very happy with how the whole thing turned out! It's definitely going to Costume College with me!
