This dress was made for Descience: Research on the Runway. I hand painted the fabric to imitate the staining of fruit fly wings in order to visualize gene expression. I made my own pattern, the understructure of the skirt is a bubble skirt made by gathering and attaching the hem of a circle skirt to a straight skirt.
I would really appreciate if you could take a few seconds to VOTE for my design!
Thank you so much!
