For the journeyman examination we had to make an evening-dress with a higher level of difficulty and soooo: here is mine.
As You could see in the past I´d rather cut off my fingers than using poly-materials, neither had the money for a whole silk gown. What should I do? I bought the nicest rayon-lining available for the dress and for an elegant feeling I took some rayon-silk for the underskirt. This is what came out, and I was somehow amazed by how much I liked the action of draping.
Most Seams are made by hand, like the hem and the pleatfixing.
