Asymmetrical Lace Dress

Added Jan 28, 2013

Roanoke, Indiana...






I made this dress a while ago for a photo shoot a couple of years ago. I just recently did some changes to the design to make it more modern and wearable. I changed the sleeves from loose bell sleeves to a more fitted look by gathering them between the neck and underarm using a shirring technique. I also changed it from a floor length maxi dress to an asymmetrical skirt. I think that it makes it more modern, but yet still has the 1900s inspired style.

      Thank you wzrdreams! I would love absolutely love to study photography as well as fashion! I actually applied to a school and they have a program where I could build my own major. I’d love to make my major fashion, photography, and film making if accepted.
