|Needed a replacement for Ashlotte and a ball gown so I have caved and fallen to the pretty that is Milotic. I have a skirt like this already and it's awesome!|
Really looking forward to starting this one! Not too sure on the fabrics yet, I've very tempted to go for velvet again if I can get it in the right colours as it'll match with Empoleon.
Really happy with this now it's finished!
I've gone for crushed velvet for the whole dress. The skirt is a little darker as I couldn't find the exact colour but to be honest I prefer the darker shade for the velvet. I've decided not to go for scales all over and just include the red to make them stand out a bit more.
Now I've got so much extra time I'm tempted to add straps to it. I was going to wear a corset under it but with the velvet and the lining it gives enough support that it really only needs straps to hold it up and it'll be perfect.
I've made a little fishy purse to go with it along with the fan and I'm also tempted to make a bag to put everything in. Pics will be up after the ball. :3
