BDay Ball Gown - Preview

Why is it a preview, actuall BDay bash is yet to happen, (scheduled for coming Friday, so more action pics, later), just wanted her to try to check the fit and the drape of the gown. quite happy with it... feel the center flower at front is bit off center...what do you think...

Feedback most welcome.... this must be the longest in terms of time taken for a single has taken me 3 days to complete .... and another half a day today to add embellishments....

This dress was a Godzilla in terms of fabric used for my petite 4 year old (remember she turned 4 yesterday!!!)

total fabric used: 7.5 meters used (will give break up later,.... need to calculate the break up... : )  )

Design of it kept changing as i kept improvising while stitching... overall happy with the end result and she looked like an Angel which was my Mission Accomplished .... :)

Here are the pics ....
