I adore this material SO MUCH! This bodice is very simple but the sleeves are very elaborate. To tone down the busy print I’m making a very dramatic, full length, velvet cloak to be worn with it.
It’s backed with twill, boned, and hand stitched together so no stitching is viable on the front
I’ve been saving this idea away until it was closer to christmas, since for some reason the print looks very holiday to me.
