For the project, we have to use at least 4 techniques we have learned in class and apply them to a blouse/shirt type garment. My techniques will be tucking, piping, beading, ruching and hem treatments. I'm going to make the gown in two pieces for now and put the two pieces together to complete the gown... just at a later date.
|The turquoise silk cost me a mere 5 bucks for 6.5 yards! |
Discounted Drapes. BOOYAAH!
|The colors are a little more muted in real life.|
I was initially inspired by the actress Miss Lily Elsie. Her gowns and pictures are phenomenal.
|She has Rachel Weisz' profile.|
|How perfect, right?|
My second inspiration was the idea of Ophelia. Whenever I think of Ophelia (from Hamlet) I think of water lilies and consequently Lily Elsie.
|I don't really care about the title, just the design.|
|It's so pretty!!!|
