La petite fille aux Champs-Élysées: The Little Girl on the Champs-Élysées (French)
She glides down the boulevard in her glamorous ebony gown wrapped in a faux zebra stole. C’est chouette! On her promenade, she will surely catch the eye of each passer-by.
Honestly, when this challenge was presented, I had some trouble getting excited about it. I wanted to make something that was practical and could be used as part of your everyday wardrobe. Then it occurred to me, this was my chance to go all out! So that’s what I went for! I tried to portray the glamour of sequins, feathers and fur.
I decided to try a verticle ruffle and a bustle. I thought it could either be really great or a big flop. Thankfully it turned out as I had hoped!
The sequins are fashioned into a belt on the empire waist that adds to the luxury of the gown. The faux fur stole in a zebra print gives the gown an added flair and the feathers are in an eye catching hair piece that compliments its style and colors!
Needless to say, by the time I finished this challenge, it ended up being really fun!
Nothing says glamour more than La petite fille aux Champs-Élysées.
