My dress for my leather class is finished!
|please pardon the cheesy mirror-photos...
|tooled leather bodice
|I cut around the motifs to create a more organic feeling along the seams, and the straps are looped through gold grommets.
|how did I get the skirt so fluffy? crinoline!
|...lots of crinoline. usually I attach it directly to the waist of the dress, but between the pure volume of fluff and the unusual waist treatment, topstitching along the motif edges, I decided to make a separate crinoline skirt for this dress.
my friend Lauren immediately seized it when I got to class and pranced around in it for a while.
