My newest creation!

I vaguely used the pattern from another dress I have made, but I altered quite a lot of it! It is made out of silk dupion, which my dad brought back from India. I had to make some changes to my choice of fabric for the skirt, as I chose to use gold satin at first. Tacky! So the cream silk dupion it was!

Personally, I'm ever so pleased with it! I originally used inspiration from Valentino, but now that I've finished, I think it looks quite Chlo-esque!



Thoughts?

I really enjoy the bow part because it's not incredibly "kiddie" like, or lil' school girl. Very sophisticato! Is there a close up of the front? Great job!!

wow that's adorable. I agree, it is very chloe-esque. And the quality of the photo is really neat- I like how it's kind of hazy and ethereal, hehe.
