Golden Azalea

Added Dec 10, 2008

by loren-rat

Johannesburg, So...






I made a version of Azalea for a model to wear to a big horse racing event.
She loved it.

Changes: I dropped the front yoke and the arm holes by 4cm; I lengthened the yoke; I cut 3 of the unders skirt and 2 of the upper skirt.

Material Notes

Gold Lame for the top; Satin, Lame, Tulle, Stretch Net and Glitter Tulle for the skirts and an Elasticated sequin ribbon stiched onto the Yoke/ Skirt Seam.





FTV for asking me to make a dress for the races and my model for wearing it so well

Burda for a brilliant pattern.
