Description

This dress has a floral rayon lining and features parallel curved French darts, Pfaff ribbon stitches, and steampunk carousel creatures encircling the hem. I know it needs to be pressed, but my iron was being a butt, and I wanted to get a picture of this before it potentially got destroyed.

Material Notes

bottom weight fabric, rayon challis lining, zipper, hook & eye, cotton yarn, stabilizer, interfacing, embroidery thread

      Thanks! I embroidered the designs with my embroidery machine. The designs came from Urban Threads. Each of those creature designs took about 2.5 hours to make.
