Quite a chellenge as this was my first endeavour with creating a dress. It took a while with planning (how to do this, how will I put together, etc.), and construction. I mostly ended up hand sewing some parts, especially the sleeves as it didn't fit in the sewing machine.
The inner skirt details were hand drawn, cut and glued on piece by piece. Beading and Ribbons on the sleeves were individually sewn. Vest trims were crochet (so tedious to do) and sewn on by hand.
Due to the lack of time, the inner white collar was taken from an existing shirt in my closet. The boots were from my wedding ensemble.
