This is the dress that started it all-- the first movie costume that made me say,
"I have no idea how, but I must make that dress." The first planned, but
not the first finished, this dress was a nine-month odyssey of draping, sewing,
fitting, and dyeing.
After many years, I've finally finished documenting my construction of this dress, along with my notes on what I'd do differently if I were to make it again. I've also done a short costume study using the pictures that BenaeQuee took at the NYC fashion show in 2005.
