  • Glamorous Golden Book Gown - Ryan

    March 30, 2011 by Britex Fabrics

This is fitting for the most discerning member of royalty; the billowing skirt consists of 22,000 square inches of fantasy and includes a train trailing in back. Here he documents the process from unboxing the volumes, to sewing them together with gilded thread, to modeling the evening dress.
