Blast from the past! My senior formal dress. Rediscovered my love for it while closet cleaning today.
Some people may remember this incredibly old sketch: [link] lol. *cries* my little sketch is all grown up now!
Putting this under 'designs' rather than 'clothing' because I had the base dress done by a tailor (due to time constraints/studying).
I did do all of the lace applique myself though. It took a century lol.
Originally it was from a wide lace trim made up of flower motifs, with a scalloped edging. I cut out all of the flowers, and separated the edging (veeeery carefully. expensive beaded french lace was EXPENSIVE), and jigsawed the pieces into patterns which would complement the cut of the dress. Naturally, it had to be hand sewn because of the delicate beading.
My camera is crap and satin photographs badly under my house lights, so I apologise for the somewhat dodgy photo. Unfortunately, it just doesnt get across how beautiful the lace is.
I'm really trying to get back in to the swing of things after burning myself out on school and I figured what better way to do that than a simple design?
This one is sort of 1810 up top with the sort-kinda-not-really empire waist and 1860 on the bottom with roman thrown in for the sleeves. It's probably so simple because I came up with it from a dream ^^' I figure it'd go nicely with some cream slippers with a gold accent and then gold hair ornaments
I probably gonna post another dress (this one more complicated) within the week, if not here then on Tumblr.
PLEASE NOTE: I do not allow any use of my designs.
The second of a set based on an idea for a set of costumes for a friend and myself. This is her half, the Queen of Hearts to my Card Soldier. There were so many components I was trying to squeeze in here that for a while I lost track of whether I was working on one design or many. This is intended to be something possible to actually construct in real life (maybe), so it's not exactly what I had in my mental picture. I actually have multiple QoHearts ideas, but this one is special.
Also note, the overskirts would drape to the ground and form a train.
