Sari Fabric dress modeled by Catherine
She was given this fabric by an Indian friend in London years ago and it was in a box of fabric that she had given me - I had fun figuring out motif placement and matching on the bodice and the border made an awesome hem detail
Nina in a reproduction of a women's gown from 1911, I used the silhouette of the 1911 gown and used modern fabrics - the underlay and upper bodice are made of miami powermesh and the sleeves are made of powernet.
