Added Mar 4, 2010
Designed in fall of 2009, I wanted to present a long formal gown made of fabric that wasn’t made for its intention. Shirting material is the nice stretchy cotton fabric that women’s collared shirts are made of. I adjusted a Simplicity pattern for this dress and added the fishtail sweep train. The underskirt is black chiffon to pull in the dark stripes as to not make it look like a simple wedding dress.
White cotton stretch shirting fabric. Black nylon chiffon. White cotton thread. 22" zipper.
