Nothing like green for a redhead!

This ball gown is deep green tulle, with a banding of deep green fine silk. The bodice is of the same green silk, and the full puffy sleeves are of the green tulle. The underskirt is an ivory silk with flounces of a wide ivory lace. I used the ivory color under the tulle instead of the green to show off the design and enhance the drama of the tulle draping. The draping continues down the back of the trained skirt. As accent to the design I placed pink flowers and bows at the bodice waist. She also has a green bolero jacket, but I didn't put this on her to show, as we all know what a simple green silk bolero jacket looks like. I love green on a redhead.
