Hermione Dress Commission

This dress was with only some still photos from the client. I patterned it from a combination of draping and pattern drafting. The actual dress is made up of 102 pieces. The bust is cut so the fabric molds to the shape without the use of darts. The chiffon is hand dyed to the umbre effect.

Material Notes

Poly Satin, Silk chiffon, Rayon lining.
