This actually an older dress of mine, but I was wearing it the other day for another event and thought I would snap a few shots. The orginal dress post is right here with more pictures
This gown matched my Dracula book and silver locket, thus the reason for including them in the shots.
The gown is made of a dark red heavy silk type fabric with a contrasting black embossed center panel. The top of the sleeves are sewn out of the same fabric as the center, but the lower halves of the sleeves are a sheer chiffon style fabric.
On the front of the bodice there is an overlay of a lace style design that has been sewn on to give the dress texture and detail. Hand embroidery was done down the front along the edge of the black panel.
The back of the gown has been bustled to achieve that silhouette.
