ok so this isnt mine it's my sister's but she doesn't have an account on craftster so being the gracious sister that i am offered to post them for her. it's afantastic piece of work and needed to be shown off! Smiley

she worked from a pattern for the top but it was altered considerably. the bottom is a circle skirt and the "crinoline"  is a tutu she made for everday wear some years back. she worked on it for quite some time as she is a novice sewer and she had to undo nearly as many seams as she made but i think it turned out really well! you can't really see in the pictures but the edge of the skirt and puff sleaves are scalloped and the extra fabric was cut by hand because she hadn't learned to use her serger yet. anyway enough story more pictures!


the front (the top hat was stolen from a friend part way through the night)


the back


the cute couple! and another basic full dress view!

hope you like it. i know she's looking forward to reading all your comments. feeback both positive and *gasp* even negative, is greatly appreciated! thanks! Smiley

It's super rare to see a formal dress that is sexy AND has some type of sleeve!

Love it.
