The Moonlight Dress

A little early to be a flapper dress, but the style's similar!

“Captured by Moonlight” was the theme.
1922 was the year.
This is the dress.

The Moonlight Dress is another custom design for a WhiteFire Publishing book cover (see the Walks Alone dress here). If you’d like to get a glimpse into the design process, take a look at my Pinterest board. You’ll see images pinned by the publisher, author, and me as we tried to come up with a design that we were all happy with.

My dad took these pictures with Moriah as model. She had some fun with the shoot, as you can see ๐Ÿ™‚ Now the dress is headed to the “real” model who will appear on the book. As soon as I get pictures, I’ll post on the blog!

    This is the dress for the front cover of Captured by Moonlight, set in 1922. The book, the sequel to the multi-award-winning Shadowed in Silk will be released by WhiteFire Publishing Feb. 2013.

      Aww… thanks. I’d say it’s a great combination of both that makes it “stunning” ๐Ÿ˜‰
      You did a wonderful job Jordan! It’s amazing to see what came from gathering pictures and sketches, to the fabric draped on the dress-form, to this masterpiece! Bravo!

      I have to agree with you – Moriah makes my work look great!
