The Terno Gown
Added Jul 9, 2008
Sharing one of my final tests in school :), this is called a “terno” – a long dress/gown with constructed butterfly sleeves. The terno is a modern take on our national costume called “baro’t saya” (which means blouse and long skirt). I constructed cabbage roses on the sleeves and on the end of the draped tafetta on the bodice. The gown is beaded on the bodice, crystals were placed on the center of the flowers. the panel/train at the back is part of the skirt (pleated).
old rose silk chantung and golden brown taffetta, beads and crystals
