Yep ^^ no photoshop
involved. I am very proud of her. The pattern that her dress
is modeled after belongs to simplicity ^^ I take no credit
for their genius.
For those perhaps
wondering the story behind this kamiki had bought the
pattern with the intent to recreate the dress on the
front... well.. more like have me recreate the dress on the
front but never mind. After purchasing the pattern we
discovered we also had to make a hoop skirt and corset. Sad
to say, those are very expensive to make. The dress would
have probably come to about 300-600$ just for the materials
(not joking... that things a lot of fabric). Because of that
kamiki, heartbroken, gave up on getting the dress.
So this is where this
picture plays into this tale. I wanted to give her the dress
so I dew an image with the exact dress and heavy parallels
to the original picture so that she would know she got the
dress she wanted in a strange way.
