Well, it took me some time to finish this one; with my birthday at the end of August, Halloween to worry about, moving and then the Holidays, my hands have been quite full!
I finally started watching the Showtime version of Borgia and I am just in love with the gowns worn by the ladies. So, being a part of an Italian Guild, I thought it was only fitting to own a few higher cut gowns. But I didn't want to have some replica of a gown that I had seen on TV so I set out to find a good way to make one that was all my own but equally as elegant and one of a kind.
I decided on green; I had some beautiful thick Olive fabric that I had been saving for a 'someday' bodice and possibly a pair of sleeves, so I pulled that out of my 'bodice stash' and set out looking for a good, dark green satin/taffeta. Although my fabric choices are a bit odd, unconventional and definitely different, I love the contrast of the two greens.
And lastly, I found this online while looking for ideas for my next gown today and had to share!
