I made this dress with paisley velvet.
I almost didn't change the design. I attached the rhinestones around the neck line. I wanted to wear the dress in winter, but this pattern doesn't have a lining. If you would like to add a lining, I recommend that you use a stretch fabric, because this pattern has 8 bodice parts and a three dimensional design. This time, I sewed only three pieces lining (it's too much hassle to cut and sew 8 bodice pieces for lining!).
I made these earrings too. I used the left over fur fabric when I made the fur vest (here) before. They were very easy to make!
1. Cut and sew some fur fabric.
(Diameter about 1 3/8 in or 3.5 cm)
2. Pull the thread, so that it makes a pom-pom.
3. Pierce a hole into the pom-pom.
4. Through pin or wire.
I usually wear this dress with a leather jacket or a fur vest, because I realized that a dress, it slightly reminds me of a... spotted SEAL! (especially from behind) I love seals, but I don't want to look like them.
I have to go on a diet...(￣◇￣;)
