Silk Organza Dress

I was inspired by a vintage house dress I purchased at a thrift store. I copied the vintage dress to create my own pattern. I was given an antique, silk kimono as a gift. It pained me to cut into the kimono, but I loved repurposing the kimono in a more modern garment. I applied pieces of the kimono along the bottom hem and added wool roving with a needle felting technique. My sweet friend is modeling the dress. Model is wearing a black slip under the dress.
