punk ballerina dress

Los Angeles, Uni...






I made a corsetted to with eyelet back, then for the bottom of the dress I used an exercise ball as my shape, drafting a pattern from the globe-like shape to have it be as rounded as possible. There are three crinoline pettiskirts attached at the waist to give it volume. I had no pleating foot for my machine at the time, so the petticoats took almost as much time as the dress itself.

Material Notes

The top layer is made of a shredded lace stiched s=down to a fine fabric, lined with balck as the top half was very sheer. The bottom half is the shredded lace on top, with crinoline underneath.

    Can I say that I’m smitten?

    What a timeless slhouette, and an up to the minute choice of fabric manipulation and layering.

    That dress could trump any other dress in a crowded room.

    This is a very awesome ballerina dress! I could definitely see someone doing a performance to a My Chemical Romance song in this. Congragulations on the success!

    It’s a shame the details are so hard to see in these photos. The construction looks interesting.

    Soooo Coool! I love the simplicity of the design combined with the texture of the material. It`s a beautiful silhoute as well. The lacing on the back adds that romantic yet strong vibe to the whole piece. The look of the model with the styling made the outfit even more outstanding!!! BRAVO!!!
