CeNedra's Homecoming dress

For those that missed the FaceBook album that Ray put up for me, here are some shots of CeNedra's dress as a Homecoming Queen candidate. She drew a picture and said "can you?" and 57 hours later we had this creation. Grin. She is still one of my best creations, but the dress turned out rather well. :)

It has a fitted bodice with decorative lacings along the front, emphasized by the white ribbon. Bodice and main skirt are hunter green brocade with sleeves and two overskirt layers in sheer black.
Under the dress she is wearing a very full petticoat (evil tulle--ugh) and hoops. She had to squish the sides of her dress in to make it through doors. Grin.

Decorative lacings on front of the bodice. I left the eyelets gold for flash. The eyelets along the back (how she gets in and out of the beast) I wrapped in black to mute the gold as well as adding more strength).

My favorite shot yet--with a "Squee!" and a giggle all dignity flew away as she twirled like a maniac. Grin.
