Description

This is a 3 month long project, it is a silk brocade bubble gown with lining. The top is draped to perfection with a bubble skirt that gave me a lot of problems but I think it worked itself out. I was going to put this gown in the “Party Through the Decades” contest but it wasn’t finished in time, but now it’s finished and was in a fashion show in early December.

Material Notes

I used silk brocade fashion fabric, aqua lining, steel boning, tulle.
