Here are some not so glamorous photos of me wearing the completed dress. The ruching does not show up so well with all of these creme circles. Just so you know, my hair is pulled back in a pony tail and I have my bluetooth stuck in my ear. After posing for these shots, I decided to take up the waist line about 1/2 inch more. I also need to stitch down the crossover area as it pulls apart easily when wearing.
