Rowland Heights,...






Pleate the fabric and twist is the main idea in this dress, the cut out on the front is my favorite part of the dress.

    Pretty! Where are the main seamlines? What closures do you use to get into (and out of) the dress?

      there are three layers in this dress, lining, foundation with the boning and fashion layer. The reason you can’t really see the seam line is because I almost hand sewing on the fashion layer. Of course, the seam shouldn’t be seen on the foundation, right? I use hook and eye on the back but not the center back : )

    I love your creativity.

    You could easily make it functional and stay up by just adding in netting as a bodice and attach the main fabric to that.

    It’s wild. A lady on a yacht drinking a martini would wear this.

    Like the pleating and twist but would like to see this on a model to see how it actually fits

      I love the idea and the dress looks fantastic, my compliments. But how can it stay on a real person? The shoulder strap doesn’t look like “holding” anything, neither does the plunging neckline
