Water Fairy Gown
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.
