My second sketch of it to try and make it a little neater and show what the back would look like.
This piece has a bow on the neckline that tops a large braid going down the center of the dress. Then from the braid are drapes of fabric flowing around the entire dress symetrically. Fuschia color or possibly in black.
This design would be in all black lace. The shoulder are large pieces of black lace draped over the shoulder, not sleeves. The waistband is silk and the skirt has a lace pattern styled hem. The neckline has strands of black fabric vertically from the lower part of the neckline up to the actual finish.
This one I though of after watching the Alexander McQueen fashion show. It's all white fabric, and has a high neckline. Then white strips of fabric wrap around the waist and then come up to encircle the shoulders. The skirt pieces off and criss crosses white strips of fabric for a hem.
Hope you all had a magnificent weeked!
