Sweetheart satin and black tulle dress
This dress was for a client who wanted to model the dress from one she had seen online. I used satin, tulle, and denier fabrics. I also used venice lace which I found through Etsy. I used Mcall pattern M5850 to create the same look as the original dress, but extended the skirt length.
Pattern or design used: McCall pattern # M5850
