Description

Long evening gown, made with 100’s handmade taffeta petals. it took me approximately 2 weeks to complete the hand stitching for the petals.
It has a transparent deep V insert in front, made of nude soft tulle. The bottom mermaid part is also made in soft tulle.
Thank you for watching :)

      sorry I reply so late! I used a basic pattern, from which I cut out the V. Before sewing around the V, I ironed a very narrow band of interfacing to keep the V from getting loose while sewing.
