Description

The name of the dress is due to the raised pattern on the skirt. No it’s not moire (I think that’s how you spell it) fabric of any kind. It was actually some strange upholstery fabric my mom had no use for. The entire waist is raised and has interfacing for stiffness, with eye-grommets in the back for lacing. The skirt itself is flat in the front due to only having 5 flat pleats while the rest of it is ruched using elastic (so I can get in and out of it. I am pictured with a black crinoline underneath. Sadly these are the best photos I have until I can get a hold of my friends camera (hopefully in a few days).

EDIT New photos!!!
