Description

This dress was made for a colleague to wear to the students’ ball. I drafted a pattern from a picture of a dress my colleague liked. I created a muslin (the white with blue ribbon dress) to check for fit and form and then made the dress from a cream satin spotted with navy dots. The skirt is a full circle skirt.

Material Notes

Satin and crepe satin for the embellishments
