Part four of my (somewhat) recent sewing binge. The inspiration behind this dress was the unbelievably perfect coordination of these two fabrics. Thats right, two. the skirt is made of the front and back sides of a metallic twill. The bodice is boned; I really wanted to experiment with ruching; Ive never done it before and I am proud of the first outcome. Lets just say that there is a lot of room for improvement. I created the two-tone skirt to give the illusion of impossibly small hips. I added a vintage leather belt for waist emphasis, and we styled the outfit with gold leather sandals to lighten the heavy look of the outfit. All for now, I hope you guys enjoy the design posts!
