A short, fluffy, fun dress I made in a week! It was inspired by Marchesa dresses and the effortless, yet heavily textured quality those dresses have.
I made mine from several yards of ruffled jersey, ivory mesh, and a mesh embellished with chiffon flowers. I also used feathers, lace, sequins, and ivory jacquard to give the dress more texture.
This dress has three pieces – a skirt made from rectangles of ruffled jersey. A dress, with a boned jacquard bodice and mesh skirt, which is embellished with sequins. And a mesh bodice overlay, which has sleeves that are embellished near the cuffs with lace and sequins.
I have three blog posts about the project, along with three videos, they can be viewed below.
