Shiny Red Dress

Shiny Red Dress
This three part fantasy dress is made out of a bright red shiny pattern-teffeta. The top is corselet-like cut with black lacing on the back and black lace straps.

There are two different matching skirts. The first one consists of two plain ankle-length rectangles whith are bound together with black lacings on both sides.

The second skirt has two lacings at the front down to the knees and a little train.

Making of …

The pattern for the train skirt is a changed pattern from the Burda Special issue Festliche Mode E397 and the corselet is a changed pattern from another dress. The simple pattern for the rectangle skirt is self-made.

The dress is exclusively sewn by hand.

Completed: 2003

… in Action

I wore the dress with or without a corset, but not often.

Status: I gave the dress away, because I did no longer wear it.
