@ladyamalthea:  Gorgeous dress! I love that corset back & the off-shoulder sleeves, so romantic! Here’s my sketch and finished product- I have to say it was an amazing process seeing it all come together!

@ladyamalthea:  haha, nope! i’m supposed to have a professional corset maker draft the pattern for the top and fit it to me, then i’ll make it. (little daunting! i haven’t done those techniques before!)

it’s going to be a mashup of these two dresses (body of the oyster silk one, in white dupioni with the polka dot overlay)
 

with bodice and skirt separate so i can wear it more like this if i want:

@ladyamalthea:  thank you so much!!! ^-^ the keyhole is also my favourite part..

I think I’ll go ivory… I tried on some white dresses which looked awesome, but I was really tanned then and I think I won’t manage that in May 😉 I also want an ombre pink petticoat underneath going from hot pink around the legs to blush… (only to be seen when sitting, something like that) but my mom’s against it -_-‘

btw: definitely love the idea with the silver ribbon! it’s very special!!!

@ladyamalthea:  I wanted to do peacock-coloured feathers first but I’m just not that flashy. plus, SO likes dresses r-e-a-l-l-y simple……^-^ not sure though if I’m not using peacock coloured rhinestones for accents.. like these(image doesn’t do them credit)
