Wedding inspiration _ DIY flower girl ballerina dress 2

I previously made a tutorial about how to make this super cute and easy Ballerina Tutu out of tulle. It really is a very cheap and beautiful way to make a sweet skirt, both for kids and for teens. If you chose a different colour tulle it could also be used for a carnival costume. This one is for my beautiful flowergirl, Lima.
I chose a soft tulle with small holes in order to create a softer, more romantic look.

 I then made this dress in silk. Only the top part will be visible and the bottom part is just an underskirt. The ribbons on the dress are used to attach the tutu to the dress itself. I added a few more having a total of 8 ribbons.

 A close up of the ribbons. This photo isn't that clear...But basically I attached the middle of the ribbons to the silk dress right on the seam where the top meets the skirt. 8 ribbons were placed equidistant.  
Here's the front of the dress with the tutu attached to the dress. 

 The back of the dress resembles my wedding dress. It has one layer of silk (the front has 2 layers) and then a layer of lace. The lace has a scallop ending and that part comes out further than the silk creating a slightly see through part. The back of the dress is open in a V shape, just like mine :)
 This is the back of the dress. A open V shape just like my wedding dress. The part in the very middle back has an extra elastic allowing it to sit firmly.
So, what do you think? Did I do a good job?
