Shirley, New Yor...
This elegant gown has a very low back with canadian smocking detail that is so flattering, you’ll adopt Nicole Kidman’s over-the-shoulder red carpet pose! The front of the fully lined dress has a high neck with pockets outlined with piping. The pockets are a little hard to see…they blend.
I created the pattern for this one by just draping and cutting the pieces. The model was so tiny, it was a little big on her but all in all, I love how it looks. The little diamond in the back is a technique called canadian or lattice smocking, which I fell in love with and taught myself to do.
I made the fascinator on her head as well.
