I love this dress. The design, the colors, the fabrics... everything! I had secretly planned it for myself as a new solo dress, but someone from the UK also fell in love with the design :-)
For me it was a first time making someone other than myself such a 'flashy' dress with the works (shaped pleats and hemline). It was a great experience to work on something of championship level.
The base of the dress is made of the black metallic silk from Whitelodge Fabric (one of my favorite places to shop for dress fabrics). The blues are square holo dots and the silver is a holographic foil of some kind. The underskirt is made of a fabric called 'heavenly mermaid'. You can see why :-)
