'Tis made of purple taffeta (which means any time I move I sound like a walking tent) that my mom found a huge bolt of for an absolute steal at a garage sale. The belled sleeves are completely lined. The back is closed by cording lace up, featuring a large number of metal grommets. That was also nearly the death of me, trying to get them all spaced evenly.

Apologies for the less than detailed photos, but they do capture the sleeves of the dress nicely, and really those are the highlights of the outfit. Smiley

I forget what pattern I used. I think it may have been a McCall's...

This dress is beautiful. And the first picture should be on the cover of either Gothic Beauty or some symphonic metal band's CD.
