First attempt at a latin ballroom dress

My husband and I are dancing a jive on Saturday in a showcase in Denver and of course I left making a dress to the very last minute!! I like the crossover look and thought I would add a touch of glitter by making one of the front panels a nude material with a glitter netting. I carried this around to the back.

For the waist I added gathers to hide any imperfections and give a slimming look.

I made the skirt asymmetric to allow movement as I have to do a few high kicks. Last minute I decides to add a little of the glitter fabric to the bottom of skirt for balance.

Finally I added a sleeve with an elastic loop to go over my finger to keep it from riding up.

I will post a few more pictures of me wearing it soon.
