Here is my original sketch:
Inspired by the color and rich embroidery of Bollywood films, I created this gown for her.
The underskirt is purple silk, the overskirt is embroidered tulle over a green satin lining. In front, the skirt is decorated with two small jeweled hummingbirds.
It has a small detachable train in back.
One thing I did not finish is the back lacing. I seem to be out of grommets at the moment….
It’s a pity that my camera just could not capture the true shiny glorious-ness of this gown! The embroidery has a ton of beads and spangles and really catches the light.
I may add a sash as in the original sketch…if it goes well with the hummingbirds.
While in LA earlier this year, I found the perfect mask.
