This is the first dress I made. It was specially made for my brothers wedding. I had to make all the patterns and the corset. Even though it is a strapless dress, the corset helped the dress to stand still so I could dance without problems.
It was a great adventure, but it worth it. I had the most beautiful dress at the wedding. ;)
I used elastic satin (champagne color), tulle, natural silk for the lining, bones for the corse, almost 400 pearls and 100 swarovski rhinestone for the belt.
