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