This project was a labor of love. Easily over 50 hours of work went into this dress. It is very likely the most beautiful dress I have ever made. I took the bodice of one pattern and mixed it with the waist and skirt of another pattern. I also lengthened the sleeves and customized them so that the seam did not end up on the top of the hand like a raglan sleeve wants too. It is fully lined with silk crepe de chine and interlined with silk organza. Hand picked zipper as well. The lace waistband is motifs that were all pieced together. I am incredibly proud of the results. It has a PERFECT hem.
