Description

I wanted to add a few carats to the diamond shape. I am up for some relief but honestly, I am relieved I finally fixed the canadian smocking detail to the rest of the dress. I still have to fix the zip though

    Oh my gosh, this dress is just breathtakingly beautiful! To me much more so than shiny silk prom dresses!!! :P I just love the smocking, can’t believe that what I think of as burgundy velvet sofa cushions (in the homes of little old ladies) can be used for such cool things. When I first discovered a tutorial with this technique recently, I just fell in love with it, and thought that it would be so cool to use on an otherwise simple and straight forward garment. This dress is a super example of that! I love the way you have gathered the dress where it meets the smocked diamond, it really lifts the dress to new heights! I saw somebody mention “that pattern”. Could you please post which pattern it is that you have used, if you have used a pattern rather than drafted it yourself? Thanks a lot! :)

    Looks really nice, the smocking seems to be very difficult, so respect for doing this!
