Fluid Fabric Challenge

Charmeuse Dancing Frock

A sillk charmeuse party dress for a client who requested a modern garment which would stand out at dance parties where many couples wear elaborate period dress.  The skirt is floor length and extra full, with a very large godet added center back to an already circular skirt.  The bodice is constructed from handmade strips of twelve colors of charmeuse, woven potholder style; it is punctuated with a double binding at neck and sleeve and a dark red cummerbund at the high waist.

    Your dress shows off the fluid and sensuous qualities of charmeuse to great advantage. Beautifully designed and constructed with colors that shimmer and delight the eye. I would love to dance and twirl in a dress like this.
