I made a corsetted to with eyelet back, then for the bottom of the dress I used an exercise ball as my shape, drafting a pattern from the globe-like shape to have it be as rounded as possible. There are three crinoline pettiskirts attached at the waist to give it volume. I had no pleating foot for my machine at the time, so the petticoats took almost as much time as the dress itself.
The top layer is made of a shredded lace stiched s=down to a fine fabric, lined with balck as the top half was very sheer. The bottom half is the shredded lace on top, with crinoline underneath.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
