Holiday party time and of course nothing to wear

Every year Craig and I go this this ball at the Georgia Aquarium.  Of course I didn't have anything to wear. I was watching Breakfast at Tiffany's (for the 14th time)  a few months ago and decided that I would try to something close to Hollys dress. I have always thought it was very elegant.

I put together 2 patterns the front I used Butterick 4056 which I have had forever. I made the top longer in the front I love the shoulders on view E.

For the back I used McCalls 7506.  Hollys dress had a waist in front and back.I made a very long split in the back. My fabric was a polyester crepe from my forgotten fabric stash😌.The dress is also fully lined, also from stash.

I had the trim in my stash as well.  I purchased it while I was in living in NY years ago. I didn't know what I would use it for at the time. But I had to have it.You know how that is.

I purchased the gloves at my local beauty supply store the only issue is, they would not stay up. The next time I wear them, I need to put a tuck up top. I was surprised to see that a lot of women at the ball had them on. They have them in all colors for about 10.00.
I have on a wig because my head stays super COLD...........👀.
