This was my final for my Surface Design II class. I wanted to make an evening gown depicting my love for snakes and to try to dispel the common myths about them. I initially used a pattern from Burda the Heidi Gown Variation and it looked like the most miserable dress I’ve ever seen so instead I used the top from a Simplicity pattern and the bottom from a vogue pattern. It is all fabric that I hand dyed, embroidered, and screen printed.
Bodice & Underskirt: Silk/Rayon Charmeuse blend
Skirt Overlay: 100% Soft Silk Organza
Red Accents: !00% Silk Organza
All screen prints are designed by me
