Haha told you all I was working on a bunch of dresses!
This one kept reminding me of The Phantom of the Opera LOL. A bunch of you are going to shoot me but I don't like PotO except for the masquerade scene haha. I think it's the crazy costumes and dancing around on pretty stairs that does it for me.
Even though I kept being reminded of Christine's wardrobe, it's actually inspired by the "Fox and Moon" story I keep badgering you all to death with haha! The character Moon is based off of me and if I was the moon, I would walk around in extravagantly long, silk chiffon nightgowns and robes. So a little piece of that wardrobe is now real. (:
Anyway, dismantled two vintage dresses for this one and used tons of old scraps I had laying around to piece it together. It's light and flowy and the train is subtle when you walk around in it. YES, it's see-through because it's made as a nightgown piece. On this mannequin the shoulders look normal but they're off-shoulder. This mannequin is NOT my size hahaha. XD
Materials: Silk Chiffon, Alencon Lace, Old Vintage Lace Dress, Beads, Faux Pearls, Embroidered Appliques, Beaded Appliques This piece is SOLD.
I love looking at handmade clothing specially things like this!Which is how I came across this picture and such. Anyways this is a beautiful peice and i wish I could do stuff like this! Haha and honestly i didn't think of PotO but of fairies or something haha
Oh I hear you; handmade clothing is my favorite and I'm always so inspired to see the other handmade pieces here on dA. Thank you so much for the kind words and I'm glad you like it! Yeah, I was thinking elven clothing originally but someone mentioned PotO and it stuck. XD
