Let the Flames Begin! by Misguided-Ghost1612 Let the Flames Begin! by Misguided-Ghost1612
This is the dress I designed and made for my Major Textiles Project for my HSC

It was inspired by the popular book series The Hunger Games. It was a combination of the interview dress from the Hunger games and also the mockingjay wedding dress from Catching fire.

The dress was hand dye 4 times with 4 different coloured dyes to get the ombre effect. And on the bodice there are over 100 individual sewn little flames that have been strategically place and hand sewn onto the dress using an invisible nylon thread. The sleeves have almost another 200 slightly larger flames, also hand sewn. Under the skirt there is also a two layered crystal organza petticoat.

A total of 28 different fabrics were used to make this dress.


NOTE: this isn't me wearing it

It looks beautiful and must take a lot of time! But arent the sleeves are heavy with all the little flames? They look like it  (reminds me a bit of a nice warmth patchwork cover for winter :D
The dyeing is gorgeous! the colour gradient looks wonderful

Thank you so much :D
yes the sleeves are a bit heavy, which means it can't be hung up. but is not just the sleeves that makes it unable to be hung up. The dress as a whole is quite heavy and the tulle upper bodice would stretch out of shape... anyway.....
