White and black A line evening dress, size 10. Here are the details about the materials I used:
Bodice: made of white taffeta, with straight neckline in front and deep neckline at the back.
Belt: made of black satin, with hand-embellished Miyuki glass beads and sequins.
Skirt part: made of fine stretch cotton, with handmade black organza flowers, stitched with Miyuki glass beads and sequins. The flowers are bigger at the hem and smaller toward the waistline.
The dress is fully lined with white and black anti-static lining and it has zip fastening at the back.
I used the Burda pattern, but I took out the sleeves and I made a lower back.
All the fowers are handmade: each petal has been cut, burned at the edges, handstitched into flowers with beads and sequins.
