Washed Lavender Organza Dress
The main focus of this dress for me was the bodice, I wanted to really make the sheer quality of the organza stand out. I used minimal seaming, and only lined the bust portion of the bodice. Gathered sections were achieved by "catching" the looseness caused by cutting those peices on the bias.
Techniques: French, plain, and corded seams. Fully lined and interlined in sections. Invisable zippered back with hook and thread eye at neck closure.
Materials: Washed grey/lavender Organza and black Habotai lining. Both Polyester.
Pattern or design used: My own design - The Women-Draped Gown
