Updates : v2 – I am much happier with this version! I’ve acquired a pink floofier petticoat and have since sewn white tulle to the bottom. It’s much better. I’ve also dyed a pair of the white Agent Provocateur “Jessica” heels to pink. Constantly improving! I may or may not have just bought more pink duchess satin fabric (found it again since my original source stopped selling it!) Looks like version 3 may be happening.
About the Costume: This dress is so much fun! The dress was a challenge as I had never made a pleated skirt dress before. The dress is made from pink duchess satin as the original was. The sequin fabric is a mesh that is flat lined to the satin and then lined in muslin. The petticoat is a white small petticoat I made for my Harley poodle skirt. I plan on buying a fuller petticoat and adding pink to the bottom. The shoes are the Agent Provocateur “Jessica” in off white which I dyed/painted the accurate pink and black (v1 were a pair of “Katy” that I cut a peep toe into, primed, painted, and added the bow out of craft foam). The earrings were from etsy, the headband is a duchess satin pink with elastic at the bottom. The ring was a find on etsy as well. The jacket is the SA Topshop moto jacket and the mother of pearl flower brooch was a find online.
