I have always wanted to make something that looks like it should be in a fantasy movie. I think I may actually have done it with this one.
I created this dress with the idea of wanting a dress to almost float with lots of layers of light weight material when wind it it.
I came up with the concept after scoring a bargin on ebay of cream chiffon for $71 including postage. I then cut out the pieces and hand dyed each piece giving a very rich and beautiful differentiation in the colouring. I used two standard patterns for the skirt and sleeves and drafted my own patterns for the rest of the items attached directly to the corset.
I am so happy with the way this dress moves in the wind - full of life. It is truly Epic.
