San Pedro De Mon...
This dress is made in a lovely silk that gives 2 tones when it moves, antique gold and silver. I really love it!!!. Now, what I did is a one piece dress with a corseted blouse that fits very snugly, and the chiffon was all hand draped in a twist. There are no side seams, since doing it by hand gives us that choice. The skirt looks simple, but!!!!! since it is cul on circular layers, the chiffon kept growing, and I had to let it hang for about a week bejore I was able to do the hemmyng that is all done by hand (no machine baby hem….this is hand made baby hem). Now, I use a most beautifull and heavy trim all hand embroidered in silver to united the skirt and the blouse, and to enmarc the neckline also. At the back it closes with loops and small covered buttons. I was very please when I finished, and I hope you like it too.
Outer shell: 100% silk chiffon irisdiscent.
Lining: 100% silk crepe .
Trim: Hand embroidered over silk organza .
