Vogue 8184 again

So pattern Vogue 8184 got to go to another Australia Day event but in Shot silk (from the stash). I tried the straight skirt option. I added a wide velvet ribbon around the waist that at the back ends in a neat bow (and covers the zip). The necklace is a crochet of freshwater pearls, seed beads, crystals and flame worked beads. The band across the top I cut on the straight (unlike the pattern wHich suggests the bias - for a very good reason because the original pattern is split at the CF so it works that way duh Spike.)
