Custom Order Moulin Rouge Dress

This week I've been busy sewing a custom order gothic dress for a Venetian Themed ball in the style of Nicole Kidman's red dress in Moulin Rouge. I'm using an old Tudor style corset pattern and then a mix of 50's dress patterns to make up the dress. Then the inventing begins - the bustle!

It's in a gorgeous matt black satin with black rope cording around the edges and swarovski crystal beads dangling from the neckline. A thin black lace mask is to accompany the dress.

It's been quite easy to find similar patterns on the internet, but I decided to be a bit creative and make up my own.
