Craftster member BenaeQuee designed this beautiful dress not to be a costume, but practical fashion:
My main goal for this dress was to be able to wear it as a dress, and not let it become something that looked like a costume only. I wanted it to look like fashion. I used a royal blue Duchess Satin and a Royal Blue poly chiffon. The chiffon was a bit more purple in hue than the satin, but once laid over the satin, it looked more blue. It's actually nice to see a color shift of lighter blue under the darker chiffon as the dress moves.
I can't wait to try it on!
