After that first photo, Joanna told me to "Stop just standing there - do something!" So I did! I moved this way:

I demonstrated how good the dress is when spinning:
Boy, that made me dizzy!!
Then I practised my curtsey.
And, in case I ever need it, my apparent ability to stand on one leg - don't ask where my other leg is. I haven't a clue! And there's that stupid face again!
This is how the dress looks on Diana the dummy. Quite pretty, I think!
I changed the neckline to be pleats rather than gathers. When I tried it on whilst sewing the bodice, I didn't like how the gathers were going to be sticking out on the boobular area.
The fabric for this dress was a duvet cover that I bought last year in Asda's at the princely sum of £5. A dress for a fiver? Now that's a bargain!
