Description

I custom made this blue and silver Victorian-style dress for my cousin’s prom.

Material Notes

Turned out pretty well, though in hindsight I would have not used bias tape for the straight trim on the corset, and I would have used 2 layers of a lighter interfacing rather than 1 layer of the super-stiff stuff. Poly taffeta, poly satin for bias binding on corset.
