My new dress is done!!

Postby dregae » Thu Sep 10, 2009 8:09 am

I recently picked this forum's brain on historical accuracy for a contest I wanted to enter. I ended up finding a beautiful non natural fabric that was exactly what I wanted. So I entered another catefory. Here are a couple of teaser images. The rest along with the dress diary I made for this project can be found here http://dregae.livejournal.com/

Dear Miss Dregae,
What a fabulous work of art! I visited your journal and wow! I am so impressed by your work that I am seriously tempted to get an embroidery machine. You did a beautiful job on your underpinnings and your gown. It is gorgeous! And you look absolutely beautiful in your gown!
Thank you so much for sharing!
Sincerely,
Miss Cindy

Oh my! What small country did you bankrupt to make those ruffles? They are absolutely scrumptious. And the custom detailing on the dress is just wonderful.
