San Pedro De Mon...
This chiffon dress used to be a long skirt with 3 tiers. The skirt had the hem shorter on one side…so I decided to use 2 of the tiers to form the skirt of this cocktail dress. With the 3rd tier, I made the bust and the straps pleating the chiffon and leaving space between the pleats so we could see the golden lining that is also under the skirt.
Actually, the picture does not show how well it came out!!! I was very please with the end result, specially because something totally different came out of and old skirt. I forgott to tell you!! this dress is shorter at the front than at the back!!
100% silk chiffon, and 100" silk lining.
