I get by with a little help from my online friends.

14 Jul

I have been reading  Stitches and Sparkles and watching the lovely Blessing Bennett make some terrific gowns and was envying her ability to sketch her designs and just decided I should be able to do it, so I gave it a try, using hers as a bit of a template.  Here is my first attempt.

You will probably have to click on those to make them bigger and more visible,  but I think the general idea is there.  The bodice and the skirts will actually be the same colour for this dress and the upper bodice and sleeves will be sheer mesh, probably in skin tone.  The squiggly lines are the lines of fabric tubes inspired by the Irina designs ate Fashions for Passion.  There will, of course, be a ton of stones.  This goes without saying:-)

I really, really want to figure out how to gather the tops of the godets!  My latest idea is to try darting out the extra fullness.  That is my project for this afternoon, so I will post results when I have something to show.  If anyone has brilliant ideas, or even a dress pattern or something that shows a similar treatment, please message me!
