"Bonaparte" is a watercolor floral strapless ballgown made from a light and airy silk/cotton voile fabric.
Shown here in the Blue Blossoms print, the dress has a corset top with handmade white silk flowers at the neckline. The full circle skirt can accommodate the fullest petticoat. This dress closes with a corset back bodice and a short zipper in the skirt. Fully lined, bust cups included. Petticoat not included.
BODICE VARIATIONS: The neckline can be made with the flowers at neckline or without. There is a separate structure that holds the flowers in place above the corset. If I make it without the flowers, the neckline does not have the separate structure and has a subtle sweetheart shape instead.
FABRIC: Shown here in the Blue Blossoms pattern, also available in Pink Blossoms, Coral Floral, Raining Roses and Lavender Fields print.
