Here's my mom's sketch from last spring
In order to get the open back done, we needed to do another dress under the silk chiffon one.
Here I'm trying out the silk chiffon fabric and ribbons for the dress.
For the dress under we used white "denim" silk that we dyed to suit the top lavender chiffon
Dry fabric turned out to a bit pinkish
Before cutting the silk chiffons, we did a test piece out of old fabric
(which I later took to make a blouse out of it)

The first lavender layer of the upper part of the final dress
The pieces of under dress ready to be marked with the marking paper
then the yellow marks are emphasized with thread
and only after that sewn together with thread
soon to be ready for the first fitting!
after the first fitting
the "under" dress sewn together and ironed
testing the model
And the almost ready dress!!!
