Inspiration: Lulu Sabongi

I’ve got some *serious* costume envy going on. Her costume is not that dissimilar from the white one that Dina wore at Shimmy in the city, but it looks somehow a bit more modest and suitable for older or larger ladies, surprisingly so for something that’s pretty much mesh, chiffon and strategically placed rhinestones. Probably because of the smaller dips on both front and back, and the sleeves. Those sleeves, by the way, appear to be a completely separate piece made with power mesh and crystals, and I’ve been lusting after them for quite a while! As soon as I can hack a working pattern for them I’ll post them here, as I can see plenty of possible uses for such a piece.
