cocktail dress

This cocktail dress, of my own design,  is made out of a white flocked taffeta with black satin for the bodice and cummerbund.  As it is strapless, there is boning in the foundation.  The skirt is a circular skirt with a crinoline underneath.   I decided to add the folded white material to the bodice design since I wanted something more elaborate then just a plain black bodice,  I also like the look of the asymmetry that folded fabric provides.  The cummerbund also is made of folded material. 


Pattern or design used: My Own Design - SR Miller
