Description

super plunging v-neck bubble dress (I had to buy a special new bra just to wear it!, lol)

Material Notes

The most gorgeous chinese silk brocade I think I’ve ever seen! (the real stuff, not poly); 2 colours of dupioni silk for the sash; lined with a silk charmeuse jacquard

    I drafted the pattern for this one myself, using a couple of others for guidance. I got the fabric (surprisingly enough) off of ebay! They had the same pattern in black and red with gold accents that I got some of too. I want to make that into a corset. I still have something like 6 yds of this dress fabric, I had to get it in a 10 yard lot. I have some ideas for it, but would love suggestions!
