Quinndustrious P. suggested I post this on the general clothing board, and I liked that suggestion Smiley  So, I hope I don't get in trouble having this double-posted.  In the mean time, I'll try to figure out how to get it removed from the "Designer Homage" board.  Sorry for any inconvenience, dear moderators  Wink
 
Ultraquick backstory:  I stumbled across Luly Yang's Monarch Gown a while back.  Seriously, her dress is the most gorgeous dress you will EVER see, guaranteed (okay, maybe not guaranteed, but you'd be lying to yourself if you said it wasn't breath-taking).  Google it; you'll see what I mean.  The multi-thousand dollar price tag made me gasp, so I had to resort to making it instead of buying.

I used orange satin for the skirt panels, backed with red stretch satin.  Black sharpie (and a gob-ton of it!) was used for the design and white fabric paint for the...well, white spots Smiley

And, the peacock dress is UTTERLY AMAZING!  I would LOVE to try a cocktail dress version of that, but how would you wash it???

Your dress is stunning!  It is beautiful and must have taken hours, have you got any construction details for it?  It also looks really wearable too.
