I'll be adding more pic's of the details of this dress soon.
One of a kind.Dress features a hand silk screened distressed print on the side and back of a drawing of mine I did,which is based on a medieval wood engraving of the death angel.
The dress is reconstructed from a vintage dress,It's made with black gunmetal gray heavyweight shiny taffeta and the top of the bodice is a brocade fabric.It's got a beautiful full skirt and fitted bodice Victorian type styling.Leg o Mutton sleeves and a big accent bow on the back,which zippers closed.
The dress also features a jagged hem with jagged holes up the right side of the skirt of the dress.It also has a removable and repositionable trailing bow pin.
The perfect dress to go haunting abandoned graveyards or lost loves in.

To get that really poofy look you have to either sew or add a separate petticoat under the dress.

This is gorgeous.  I would love to see it on a person, but I understand that's not always possible!
