About My Dress
A commercial pattern
Ombre Sheer Silk, Blue Polyester Satin Lining
Time To Create:
12 Hours approx.
Dress Influenced By:
Masquerade Costume, Titania - fairy from 'A Midsummer's Nights Dream' by William Shakespeare
The skirt relates to the variation of a fairy’s top and bottom wing by having a high front and low back. The lettuce leaf hem line depicts the softness and gracefulness of fairies and the outlining of the wings. I decided to use the low cut back design because it is very feminine like, which emphasizes Titania’s personality in ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’. As a finishing touch I hand sewed glass beads to the front gathered panel.
