Hiya everyone, its been a while since I posted stuff I have made.

Last month I went to a charity Ball, and the theme was Venetian Carnival.  I referenced heavily on the Pattern M6097, but altered extensively to fit my body shape and height.  It was alot of fun, and I can't wait til next year.

I also made the head piece, necklace, earrings, fashioned rings from glass buttons. Wink it was very fun to show off my work in such an elaborate fashion. I think this is the most excessively decorated garment I have ever worked on. And I didn't even add a lot of beads to it. Wink may be I should!

I think the key was to over decorate for dramatic effects.

Dresses like these, I think you can put a boat on it and it will look right in place! I love to see what you have done. Wink
