Teaser shot for Sakura V2.1
After redoing my Sakura dress like 3 times, I'm finally satisfied with it = =
I completely remade the sleeves and panels and resewed all 90 bells with the triangles. The 20m gold 'piping' is self-made. Flowers on panels were handpainted on same cloth as skirt and then appliqued onto the panels and inner sleeves. There's a total of 5 layers to the skirt: hoopskirt, petticoat, ruffled dark pink, light pink and then the panels on top.
Ball was something I bought from the garden section which I painted and added the tassle. Feather was cut, painted, heated and bent into shape.
