emerald princess

A friend brought me a piece of green tafetta from a trip to Thailand.  I was going to a formal event, and wanted to use it.  Since there was not enough yardage for a long gown, I used some chiffon to coordinate the top to the skirt.  I embroidered the middle piece, and applied crystals to fancy it up. 

I ruched the chiffon over the bust of the pattern, and added a strap diagonally over one shoulder.  I wanted the skirt to be fancier, and got the idea of pinching up the centre front from a dress that I saw in the store.

Thanks to my hubby for photography.
