Pretty Purple Strapless Top/Dress

Lansing, Michiga...






This was one of my looks for Detroit Fashion Week. It is a very sheer, ombre’d poly with an allover sheen. It is very pretty in person, the pictures don’t do the fabric justice. I made a bustier top that was supposed to open in the front, but I changed my mind and put the opening in the back (corset style with grommets) and I hand beaded the placket down the front. I added the skirt detail but because I didn’t have enough material, I walked it as a top with shorts underneath instead of a dress because the material is so sheer.

Sorry I don’t have any closer pictures of the back.

Material Notes

purple ombre’d polyester, glass beads

Model: Sierra C.
