I bought this fantastic fabric from my first visit to Mood in NYC a couple of years back. It was so expensive that I only got one yard and I was terrified of cutting into it. I’m so happy with how this turned out though. This dress features some of my favorite things like cherubs, tulle, light blue, ivory, and gold. I’m still working on the matching tulle bustle underskirt, so shots of the back in a few days.
Finally finished this dress I started in December. Sewing blocks are no fun.
