Description

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.

    OMG!! You are absolute perfection!!! Your dress is exquisite, the work is impeccable, and you are simply stunning in it!! What a lovely dress on a lovely lady! And, I couldn’t help but notice how you styled your dress in an equally exquisite room of mint and cream, with gold on the (padded?!!?) walls that even matched the hand embroidery you did on your dress!! How much more perfect could this presentation of your gorgeous self in your stunning dress be???! Delightful!

    That material does not look like velvet!! That’s something I would wear when I grow up. I love the 1930 to the 1950s period in time.

    To say you and the dress, and you in the dress is something fantastic is to say nothing! The hair-style, accesories, you… It is like you were born in this style!

    My very high marks!
