It seems like forever ago, but it was only about a month and half ago that the Denver Film Society and Museum of Contemporary Art teamed up for a super swanky Oscar party. To create more interest in local fashion, several local designers, including myself, were asked to create an Oscar-worthy dress to put up for auction. I chose Carey Mulligan as my muse and created a mermaid-style black satin gown with hand sewn chain detailing on the bodice. This is one of the best sewn dresses I have ever made. I hand sewed just about everything on the dress and I love how it turned out. I do not have pictures of this dress on an actual person, but here are some images from that night.
Quick snapshot of the dress from the front in my backyard.

A shot of my dress on the mannequin. It looks a little off because I couldn't zip it up all the way. The mannequins they provided were 36/26 which is a totally unrealistic size.

Me and my "date" Joann. Joann is wearing one of my current favorite dresses. My dress is vintage. I needed a haircut pretty bad at this point.
