This is the other outfit I made for my Dark Circus swap partner. Alas, she did not care for the dress.
For this outfit, she wanted a long dress topped with a corset. Once again, I used the spider print, and instead of bands of white fabric as she shown in a sketch, I used some lace I had on hand. For the top of the dress, I used a very simple pattern with built in sleeves. I then realized I miscalculated and made the sleeves too narrow for the arms, so I pieced in material to the shoulders. the vast majority of the dress is hand stitched, and the raw edges overcast with a buttonhole stitch.
The headdress is made from a bangle clipped to be a headband, and beads glued on.
The back of the bodice is also apparently uneven, which I find credible, and something I would easily miss, as details like that don't bug me.
As the title says, some people have different tastes.
