my summer project

as some of you may know, johnny's sister lizi is getting married in january. i am designing and making the dress. the ceremony is taking place on a beach in mexico, so the dress is very simple and easy to walk barefoot in.
its made of silk jersey with silk georgette layered over it. the shoulders have pieces of crepe tacked down to add volume and interest. there is a top layer of georgette that has tucks along the slit to add volume and break up the monotony of a long gathered skirt.
i just started draping today, so i'll post pictures as i go.

wish me luck!
