Today was the day! We picked up the dress from The Singing Seamstress today. Here are the promised pictures.
She always looks that excited when I ask her to do anything. For someone who is pursing her dream, she has an awfully "teenager" attitude a little too often for my taste.
Once she tried it on with shoes and did some dancing in it, we messaged the seamstress and decided to add an extra skirt layer to the back, so in addition to the crystals, it will get a slight design modification, to adapt to the extreme movement in her choreography.
Note the lovely new shoes, her new practice pair with the three inch heels. She has been wearing 2 1/2 inch heels since she started last year, so we don't expect her to have any difficulty adapting to the new height.
