This dress has a gathered bodice featuring a chest cutout, angular shoulder straps, and diamond-shaped detailing; it also has an overskirt that is slit in the front. I made it out of silk chiffon and georgette and some beaded lace for the diamond detailing. I used a lot of hand stitching on the hems, zipper, and beaded appliques. Even without instructions, the dress was still pretty easy to put together!

I have more pictures of the finished garment and the techniques I used making it here on my blog! http://anelisemadeit.blogspot.com/2014/10/Marfy-homecoming-dress.html
