RFL-Edwardian Blossom (Midnight Bloom)

Well i'd been working on this dress since last spring but never got it done in time. I just wasnt satisfied. I was wrestling with 3 different ideas for the train. Finally decided upon a method that seemed to work well. But that didn't happen for ages. The colors were intended as pastel dip dyes. Then RFL came up and i thought i'd put one out in reverse, in a black to color dye instead of white to color. Came out with this:

Think I'll make the spring versions now (although late in spring now!)
Perhaps one other dark version, simply black to white perhaps.

RFL - Walking Dress ~ Persian Rose

Having made only 2 color variations on my "Walking Dress" I've decided to keep going with more. Dedicated this one to the RFL for the duration.
