Had been meaning to upload this, since I finished it last week, however, I was sick and couldn't move a single bone, so here it is now
An original ballgown skirt design, no pattern used, but lots of improvisation along the way. Would do it so much differently next time...
Shown over "the EPIC hoopskirt", see that here: [link]
The skirt part of my "purple reign" formal dress design, see the design here: [link]
Made from purple brushed-back satin, with a waistband of black stretch knit and lace. Used purple cording to make the gathers/swags, there's 7 in total.
I've changed the design several times since, I want the predominant colour to be purple - it was black at one point. And the silk habutae I bought doesn't go with the satin fabric.
Link to the making-of review on PatternReview is here since it will take up too much space here: [link]
