Water Fairy: Original Concept

Water Fairy Gown
Original Concept
Completed June 2011

Items made: Dress, Sash

This was made based on a sketch and a few inspiration pics that were sent to me. The idea was a for a water or sea sprite.

The bodice is a corset-style bodice done in gradient dyed satin with lace overlay. Chiffon Grecian style sleeves and a V-neck line were added. The sash is satin and the skirt multiple layers of chiffon and organza petals with an organza train.

And lots of Swarovski crystals.    

Fun Side Note: I totally spazzed when I was making this and thought I had a week longer than I actually had so I had to ship the dress out early so it could be worn to the event for which it was made.  The dress was unfinished -- I hadn't put on the stones because they hadn't come in the mail yet, and I didn't have enough fabric to make the sash properly.  So the above photo doesn't have crystals and the sash is crappy.  The pictures below show the finished dress.
