Sherlock Holmes Herringbone Dress

Added Mar 17, 2011

Austin, Texas, U...






I wore this dress to the DIY Fashion Show. It is constructed out of black and white Herringbone silk suiting. This dress features a sweetheart, wrap-style bustier. The bodice has boning for a snug fit. A gathered sash runs across the waist and ends an inch away from the back center. The skirt has two tiers. This dress closes with an invisible zipper in the back. It is fully lined with hand dyed, yellow habotai silk.

Material Notes

silk suiting, china silk

    You’ve down it again Sweetie – just beautiful! I would LOVE to see a pic of you in it – I am sure you look beyond gorgeous!

    What I really like is the contrast between the rather conservative herringbone fabric and the sexy, sweet style of the dress. x
