November 2008 - Made from a cotton-backed sheer sari, I made this 1880s inspired dress for a character I play who was attending a masquerade ball. The idea was fire. The pastry like petticoat from David's Bridal might be a bit much. It kind of kills the Victorian shape. Some day I'll have to have it shot properly, and without the wig.
