A long dress!
Long, because when Hannah tried it on for the first time I wasn't allowed to cut it...
"No Maman! It is just beautiful how it is!"
So, here we are, an elegant dress which could even be worn for special occasions.
Pretty gathered frills fall gently from the shoulders.
The sides have floaty panels in a contrasting fabric, held in place by embroidery.
The straps are formed by ties which are done up in bows at the back.
The back is the same as the front to reduce the number of pieces.
Here Nébuleuse is sewn in:
Cotton voile by Nani Iro: Bulle de gum
Plain grey double gauze from my stash
Pois Plumes on the ends of the ties: LeS PoiS PlumeS
