Added Dec 2, 2010
For Halloween 2010 I decided to make an over the top dress. I went out and bought 3 mt of red/black duchesse satin and 4mt of dark red tulle.
I used the BWOF 10/2010, the 116 dress.
I found the bust part to be a little challenging but, overall, quite fun to work with. I used size 36 and found it a little tight on the bust. I was going for the Duchesse the Polignac look, so that wirked well, just remember to add 2cm on the bottom seam, so it fits right on the waist.
I left the sleeves out cause I couldn’t figure out how to work them.
The make-up tutorial was inspired by Erin from her Pretty Exclusive blog:
And I teased my hair beyond belief, pinned it and sprayed it with white hair-spray.
If you want to replicate it, I suggest you do it a few hours before going out. Wait till the spray dries, unpin your hair, then pin it back. This allows for even more volume.
