Description

Heavy silk with nylon strings running underneath to make a textured floral pattern under the printed orange pattern. I used a nude organza on the yoke to create a floating illusion. The back is heavily pleated and reinforced with crinoline. I draped the entire dress and draped the yoke in muslin then transferred to paper.

      Thank you. It was stressful with the weight distribution on the organza.

    It’s absolutely a gorgeous dress. The fabric print is beautiful and the mix of the organza and silk fabric is just perfect. I love it!
