Roses are Forever

This is a special dress to me and I’m very happy with my roses :)
I started the project with the drawing the upper part and made some volume to make the draping for the roses. It’s always fun to try new technics. I chose to use a BurdaStyle pattern for the skirt, and I love this hi-low style. The skirt is cut on bias therefore it’s falling very nicely. Now I have to wait for Christmas to come! The dress will be shown on a local mannequin show next week :)
