Finally, here are photos of the completed Tie Dress that I made for the One fashion Event (train repaired).
The top is a stole crafted from 15 silk ties with a silk lining. I scavenged the skirt from a recycled full length formal gown and modified it by making it short in front, reduced its original fullness and then attached it to the new silk corset waist. I think the overall resulting piece is quite dramatic. Since I only made it as a show piece, it's not particularly practical. Practical is boring.
The tie stole was inspired by my favorite Trashionista's blog Oustapop.
