This is a simple dress with an embellished sequin/lace bodice and shoulder straps and a floaty skirt. The bodice is overlaid with four wide strips of fabric over the bust they are then drawn together at its centre. These layers partially obscure the embellishment on the bodice- which glistens through.

I am not sure why it is called the Emily Dress it just felt suitable when I came to name it. The competition is to design a dress that uses decoration and embellishments. In my design the dress itself is quite simple, with a floaty skirt. The front of the bodice is however covered in lace and sequins and so are the shoulders. As a further embellishment on the bodice four pieces of fabric are drawn over the bust and secured at it's centre. This enables the sequins and lace to shine through.

It also has a zip fastening at the back.

Perhaps it could be made in a soft grey colour. I initially couldn't choose when drawing it so I just left it white... which makes it look rather bridal (I suppose that is not such a bad thing...) However, the dress has a night sky theme with the sparkle on the bodice representing the stars so I think that a grey or blue colour would make a nice contrast.
