Formal dress by 13-Zer0 Formal dress by 13-Zer0
Blast from the past! My senior formal dress.
Rediscovered my love for it while closet cleaning today.

Some people may remember this incredibly old sketch: [link] lol.
*cries* my little sketch is all grown up now!

Putting this under 'designs' rather than 'clothing' because I had the base dress done by a tailor (due to time constraints/studying).

I did do all of the lace applique myself though.
It took a century lol.

Originally it was from a wide lace trim made up of flower motifs, with a scalloped edging. I cut out all of the flowers, and separated the edging (veeeery carefully. expensive beaded french lace was EXPENSIVE), and jigsawed the pieces into patterns which would complement the cut of the dress.
Naturally, it had to be hand sewn because of the delicate beading.

My camera is crap and satin photographs badly under my house lights, so I apologise for the somewhat dodgy photo. Unfortunately, it just doesnt get across how beautiful the lace is.

This is amazing!

I was wondering, do you take costume commissions? I'm interested in a leather costume and I was wondering if you took commissions.

That lace indeed looks so beautiful :D So you bought it and cut it up, and sewed it back on by hand so you'd be able to get this shape :p? Lot of work but indeed a good way to get that perfect striking detail ^^
It looks like a potentially perfect peacock (wow triple alliteration xD) dress to me btw, probably because of the colour :D
