Jean Desses Cocktail Dress

I wound up working on the lace for the Edwardian yesterday, so I didn't actually finish up the Jean Desses cocktail dress until this afternoon. But it's done! I hand-sewed the straps, a hook and eye over the zipper, and tacked some of the lace along the bolero collar that kept wanting to stick up. And then naturally, I did a photoshoot. So here you are!

And while I was working on sewing the skirt on the other day, my dog, Teddy, climbed into my lap and laid on the edge of the skirt, forcing me to bend over him while I sewed. And because he looked so cute, I took a few pics. Here's one!
