Titanic evening/tea dress
So this is the winning dress from the vote, and is also the dress that I will be making next for Deeanne Gist. Amusingly, she contacted me to make her this dress for a Titanic tea in March while the voting was happening, completely unaware that I was looking for a dress to make! Serendipity.
So this dress is composed of Velvet, chantilly lace, what looks to be a figured light satin with figured border, fur trim, and the highlight pieces of embroidered and beaded net lace. I searched high and low for beaded net and could find nothing that would work for this dress. SO, I went a completely different route. I will be using a Japanese obi. This also completely changes the color scheme of the dress. We also need to make this interchangeable for evening and day, so I will be making a lace guimpe to wear with it. I will have to take a picture of all the new pieces when I get them all. It is going to be very exciting. I will start this in January, so check back for progress.

So life oftens gets in the way of things. I am still making a very similar dress for Deeanne, and will be posting pictures soon, but I did not get it done for this year's DPP. I can't wait to see what everyone else has done. Good luck to all the entries!
