1930 Leaf Frock in the final stretch!

Have some lining of the flounces to do in order to conceal the white satin organza interfacing:



Waiting for a little more ribbon to arrive so I may finish the straps and add the last layer of leaves to the back panel. Adding that last layer of leaves to the back panel will really give it the volume that the original art portrays and it's a wrap!

WOWZA! That is AMAZING. I just adore the back of the dress and all the leaves are so stunning!

This is so beautiful...I can see a redhead or a brunette wearing this....I also can see many iterations of it...For some reason I have it in my head to knit the flowers and sew them onto the bodice. Got to keep the hands busy on the bus!

The dress is looking great. I love the colour and the detail. Hope you have somewhere fantastic to wear it to.

That's really pretty. I love the froo froo in the back.
