MY HAND-MADE BALL GOWN

So I was going to a ball but I did not have appropriate ball gown. I looked through few shops which offered these kind of dresses but I could not find any dress that I liked and the prices were considerable high comparing to the fact that I might only use it once. That is why I decided to sew my own ball gown. I had to say that by doing so I saved a lot of money but in the other hand I wasted a lot of time for sewing which I could have used for something 'useful' instead. I was still quite happy with the outcome.
As a young woman I feel like that everyone expects you to have a new expensive dress/outfit in every party you go an yet guys can wear the same black suit. In my opinion there is no shame in wearing the same dress over and over again, buying second hand or doing your own dress. I tried to cut my expenses for the ball not only by doing my own dress but also I tried to use as much accessories that I already had. So after all I only bought fabrics to the dress and new shoes since I did not have any flat ballerina shoes. I also did my own make-up and hair.
These pictures were taken quickly before heading out so the lighting was not the best.
How did you like my hair and outfit?
