I created this dress without an actual pattern. I draped the filmy chiffon layers on a dress form until I got the look I was after. The underdress consists of a full length circle skirt attached to a gathered sweetheart neckline bodice held up with slim silk straps. The Sash/Belt was created using a Drafted Belt pattern and was cut from Silk Dupioni. I hand stitched on beading that had been rescued from a very sad antique wedding dress that someone had destined for scraps. This dress took on many unsuccessful incarnations before it became exactly what I had envisioned.
