My Homage to an Oscar Dress


Here is THE dress, not MY dress. The dress that inspired me. THE Valentino dress.

 

Now, here is MY dress!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, what do you think?? It turned out just the way I wanted it to!! So, this will be the first of my designs that I will sell! 🙂 I am going to offer it in 3 different fabrics: cotton, crepe lined satin and velvet and they will be made to order. The white ribbon is satin but it wasn’t as hard to work with as I thought it as going to be. It is fully lined so it took almost 3 whole yards to make! LOL And an entire spool of ribbon!

SHEW!! It feels good to get that design out of my head and out into the real world. LOL
