I made this dress for my boyfriends graduation, I wanted something that would be on trend for Autumn Winter 09/10. I mixed 2 patterns for this dress, I used the “danielle” top and modified the “Marie” tulip skirt. It took about 10 hours to make. I was very happy with the end result as it was suitable for both day and night. I wore it with black tights and black stiletto heels.
Tweed, black lining, 1 × 7″ black zip,black thread, for the corsage I frayed tweed and added a chain off an old dress, swarovski crystals, a sterling silver ball, a black gem and a big black bead off an old chain.
