This OOAK, upcycled party dress has black lace over a white, high low skirt. This cocktail dress is one of my favorites! It combines classic looks with exciting new possibilities! Think formal occasion or Goth wedding.
The bodice on the original dress was damaged, so I replaced it with taffeta overlain by a bold black lace that I embellished with beads and sequins. The straps and bodice top and bottom are lined with black gimp braid. The princess-seamed bodice has boning and is fully lined.
The gathered taffeta skirt has a built in crinoline for a little extra fullness.
It is a size 10 - 12. We had to pin it for my size 8 model.
These are the measurements of the dress taken flat, side to side:
bust: 19.5 inches (49.3 cm)
waist: 15.5 inches (39.3 cm)
length from shoulder to hem: 49 inches (1.24 m)
These are my 5 foot 5 inch (1.66 m) size 8 model's measurements:
bust: 33 inches (84 cm)
waist: 29 inches (73.8 cm)
hips: 39.5 inches (1 m)
