I made this one for a friend of mine… I absolutely love it!
We designed it for her completely from scratch, only using a pattern for the basic dress.
We had a hard time finding the right fabrics in the perfect shades of blueish grey and it got finished really last minute, but in the end it turned out so beautiful! The decorative border on the “corset” part we even brought with us from a holiday in Spain… so you see, we were really looking everywhere for the perfect stuff.
We used a blueish-grey satin for the dress, a grey silk for the sleeves, a blue sateen for the corset and a dark blue velvet for the cloak
