I like to call this dress the “Water Moccasin Frock”
My short explanation:
Made a skirt, bodice, waistband, & used the rest for straps on arms. Used all of fabric except for fringe trim & only added thread. Most important was the iron; with this & needle board , was able to accurately press this fabric with plastic print without melting any of the scales or pile.
My long explanation:
I found the skirt for 3 dollars at Southern Thrift in Nashville and had no idea that it was a Betsy Johnson piece until right before I started to cut it up. The fabric was gold velour printed with rose print plastic snake skin print…so crazy! Only thing I’ve ever owned by her, and now even better! I had alot of fun arranging the arm straps, and really love how they turned out.
Cannot wait to see the other awesome entries and how this goes, cheers everyone!
