Mom's pink cotton candy dress

front

Lots and lots of organza and ruffles and pleats on this dress with accents of velvet white milliners flowers.
back detail




This is one of the smaller dresses
Measurements
chest 34
waist  25
neck to hem 44 inches

This is a hand made dress.
I am assuming great grandma made this I want to know how long it took her to do all this to this dress.

Sorry for the mess in the back ground that is fray check and E6000 and muslin for working on Shakespeare costumes.

There is boning in the bodice

Milliners flowers were used as accents on the hem of the dress with all that gathering around the dress yikes that had to take forever to make.

One thing that makes me nervouse about this dress is all the raw edges.  Ever ruffle you see on the bodice and this area of the straps is all raw edges
raw edges never finished

There is a second layer under the top that has yet more ruffles on it
petticoat lininghem on lining

The saddest part of all a hugh I mean monsterous stain on the back of the dress
