Here are two dresses out of three I made for my final major project at college back in 2007! I did a couple of shoots last year with some models so put them in my dresses for some pics Smiley Just thought I'd show them off in their full glory as it took hours and hours to hand dye all the fabrics, draft the pattern for the bodices & hand sew the chiffon to them. Aaahhh so here they are, revived! Smiley














The models are Gina & Amie.

And here's the original post with pics from the catwalk show!
