This is the first dress I drafted from my custom bodice and skirt blocks! I used a lovely cotton eyelet from Gorgeous Fabrics and lined the whole thing with a light black cotton batiste. I thrifted the thin belt for $2 and it’s perfect! I put horsehair braid in the hem to make the half circle skirt stand out at the hem and I just LOVE the effect! I just love this dress and even better – it fits me perfectly! More deets see the blog http://coutureacademic.wordpress.com/2013/09/14/one-block-two-dresses/
