Teresa Valencia is a famous Ecuadorian gowns designer. So I got the model from a catalog from her I found. I got the exact color material of the original one. I tried to stick to the model. The bodice is overlaped with pleats. The skirt is also pleated. I added same material belt. I embroidered golden leaves at the edges of the belt trying to stick to the original model. Wasnt exact but really closed. I saved myself hundreds of dollars by sewing this dress. I used the same fabric of my pretty in Mint coat and Mint tulip skirt. I also added a petticot for more volume.
Do you believe me if I say it cost 2,50 dollar per meter?? Yes indeed. The material is like velvet very soft and delicate and the color is sublime.
I have the perfect shoes for my outfit and I match the complete style with the hairdo.
