Hooking a Foreign Prince

This dress is what Phedre wears to attract clients.  She goes to a social function that is attended by a prince from La Serenissima (Venice).  I designed this dress thinking of it as the beginning of a seduction and that Phedre should look sort of vampy.  It’s described as a deep blue velvet gown.

    Coming to your site is such a great way to “re-live” these moments in the book. I have already read through the books several times since discovering Carey just last year. Now I feel like I have another reason to read them again because I can now more vivdly imagine the clothes!
    Your sketches are amazing!

    P.S. Would you mind if I added a link to your site on my blog?
