Original - Original Design




This was a dress I designed and wore to the Grand International Cosplay Ball.

My original designs never end up like the first design. I change my mind so many times and change the ideas as I sew, so no idea what this was based on in the end. Nia calls it the 'Art Deco' dress :D

This was the first outfit I properly designed from scratch, so know where I went wrong! For future ball designs I'm going to try and emphasize a bit more of a shape, as straight down doesn't work for me. It was all an experiment though :D

The underskirt was made out of a stretchy dull satin, while the overlay and corset was lace overlayed on a plain material. I used bias binding and lace to give detailing, and frogging for the details on the front. I decorated some hairsticks to go with this, but you can't really see them!

Wow beautifull design and so neatly made. I love the drape of the fabric too.

I love it! Where can I buy one?! :P Seriously, especially with you saying this is your first dress-designing shot, it's come out really REALLY well. I disagree with what you're saying, too. I think the subtle shape makes you seem all shapel and feminine without being in your face ^^ (Sorry, that was a bit of a rant but I really like it! XD)
