Livonia , Michig...
This dress was made for a fashion show that I did and it came in first place. The pattern I used was Simplicity pattern 2440. The pattern was a very good pattern and not that hard. On the bodice if you look closely you can see I draped the tulle and then covered the dress in the amazing tulle. Then when I made the bodice underneath I made it like corset to give it a more form fitted look.
The Picture of the back of the dress is like that because I had to fit it to my model before the show and it ended up then not fitting my dress form.
On the dress I used Taffeta for the main part of the dress and then I used tulle and boning.
