Material Notes

The outer dress fabric was purchased from the sales bin at Karstadt in Munich. The grey cotton lining was from Ribes y Casals in Barcelona. The grey japonette skirt lining, Petersham ribbon, and zipper was from Orag-Haus, Munich. The spiral steel boning, casing, and caps were from Spitzen Paradies. The belt clasp was a birthday gift from my friend, Vronique. It was part of a collection of vintage buttons she gave me.

    Love the dress and the creative pix. I have this pattern but I made the bustier part only; now I think I may just make the dress :)

    The gloves, the setting, the pose, and yes, the dress – A M A Z I N G !

    As a bathtub seductress, you have no equal.

    Impressive construction – and a gift from a friend makes not only finishes the look, it makes this dress magical!
