Originally, I thought we’d just use the charmeuse by itself; it was definitely pretty enough! But when Melody found a silk chiffon, I began to think differently. It had green threads one way and yellow another, with hints of blue. When we put it over the charmeuse, the effect was stunning, and I knew we had to use the two fabrics together.
For a touch more detail, I added an extra seam at the shoulder; instead of one seam at the top, there are two seams, one on the front and one on the back. This gives a bit more interest without changing the fit.
But the dress still needed some sparkle. Samantha rummaged through our drawers of trim and found some lovely vintage jewelry — the perfect finishing touch!
