The Lady of the Lake
This dress is inspired by my love of fantasy and historical movies. I used Simplicity pattern #2573 and made some adjustments such as removing the shoulder strap and using loops instead of grommets for the bodice and sleeves. The underdress is made out of a sea-foam colored crepe, and the outerdress is made from a forest green velour lined with a gold jacquard.
Pattern or design used: Simplicity 2573
