BLACK SILK CHIFFON EVENING GOWN

The idea for the dress came about one day as I was playing with some beaded sleeves I had. I inverted the sleeve using the hem as a neckline and draped the rest of the sleeve over the mannequin upper body.























I love the look and that’s how the designing process stared for this dress.

It is strapless, long and I wanted it to flow, so chiffon was the fabric of choise. Chiffon is perfect for this dress, it flows and it would be easy to work with for ruching. Maybe because of the last dress I might still be hooked on ruching, so why not go all the way with it?





Make a dress "a la Desses”, “ Valentino” [no surprise there!!].


After the sketch was made, it was a matter of planning the dress:

Strapless bodice with center front dart
Full silk chiffon skirt with extension to cover both CF and CBs

The skirt would be underline with a gray georgette [the beading has gray sequins]

And of course, the lining and boning and all that good stuff






The next step was draping the center front panel follow by making the top of the dress, but that would be the next post.
