Danielle's dress is ready!

Here is just a quick picture taken of the finished dress right before it was shipped off to the USA.
A little info:
The base fabrics is a black swirl fabric is a mesh overlay with gold sequins. Underneath the black overlay is a standard black satin.
The purple brocade is used for the panels and back skirt. The lining of the dress is holographic gold shimmer lame. All these were bought in England, from whitelodgefabric.com as is the sequined lace for the sleeves.The gold foil with dots for the applique came from a local dutch fabric market.
The inside of the sleeves was lined with a cream satin to give some support to the sleeves and balance the color of the yellow/gold lace.
The panels are done in a car-wash-hem style.
