Wowzers. That is stupendously incredible. I wanna make one! My sister's wedding is November... wonder if I could get a smoky blue version finished by then? :p

Can you tell me how you collected all the fabrics, lace, doilies or whatever went into it? Do you have a large stash you were able to raid, or did you go hunting in thrift stores, or..?

I have a HUGE stash of lace and vintage fabric around my place... I used some vintage curtains, tablecloths, doilies (made some of them too), old vintage dresses, also a bunch of tulle I happened to have laying around!

You can easily (and cheaply) acquire all of these things from garage sales and thrift shops... I recommend garage sales though just because they are so so SO cheap and you can barter too which is always fun! Wink I recently got a ENORMOUS box of fabric from a garage sale and talked the lady down to $1.00!!! LOL  Grin

I have been lurking on the gibbous swap for some time. And I almost thought the pictures of your dress came out of the gibbous website.  You did a wonderful Job. I just might have to join this swap in round two.

Amazing dress!  You need to find a local wearable arts show and model it there - it's definitely an inspirational and gorgeous piece of art!

This is so beautiful! I've been following the gibbous swap because I was on swapping break when it started. I'm totally envious! Great work!
