60s Satin Dress-Test Run

I bought this 60s embroidered satin mini at the height of last summer, and still haven't worn it.
Largely because it's been far too hot until now - thick vintage satin is just not an option in summer here. I love the silver thread of the embroidery.
I bought one of those hair doughnut thingys and did a big bun with a hair flower.  Next time the bun will need to be further forward!
I've had my seamstress pull the dress apart and re-sew it, because the thread it was sewn with made it too itchy for me to wear. Hence todays 'test run'. I'm thinking I might wear this at next weekends vintage fashion
fair.
