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.

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, :).
