Summer Ballgown by dragonariaes Summer Ballgown by dragonariaes
This gown was made out a double weave taffeta, so it looks like two different colors. The train is a crinkled light satin.
Lots of silk and fabric flowers over the top of the bustle. The entire dress is completely embroidered with flowers and vines.
Worn over a four hoop skirt petticoat.

THIS IS NOT A STOCK PHOTO.

This is probably my most favorite dress to capture not too much flowers at once and look very vintage. It's not too much and looks absolutely gorgeous. The fabric is stunning! I'm aspiring to sew these types of gowns as well and you're inspiring me to continue.

I have enough left to make a small underbust corset eventually, but just haven't had the time.

I love the fabric you chose for this. You wouldn't have happened to use the simplicity pattern for this would you?

No. I don't use patterns. I drape and flat pattern all of my dresses for the people that order them, so they fit to their measurements and shape.

Wow, well that's completely gorgeous. I don't think I'd have any talent for making clothes - I've never tried, but I'll probably just stick to drawing, haha.

Beautiful work, :).
