This is the dress I made for New Year’s Eve. I made the pattern myself: a corset type bodice with boning and a gathered skirt.
The top layer fabric is a black tulle with grey plumetis underlined with black cotton piqu. The bodice is fully lined for more confort. I added a velvet ribbon for a more festive look.
The dress is also part of the Thread and Needles contest.

More details on my blog.
