Dress #290 Aurora Borealis

The northern lights have been visible in many places where they are not normally seen this summer. I saw them a couple of time in Minnesota as a child, but missed them this year. I cobbled together several things to finally achieve close to the look I wanted. Blue metallic paper, black chiffon, iridescent sheer ribbon, and a brown sheer fabric with "stars."
