About My Dress
A commercial pattern
Tessuti Linen - Linda Natural; Poly/Cotton Lace; Satin Bias Binding
Time To Create:
15 ish hours - there was a considerable amount of handsewing!
Dress Influenced By:
Influences came from a vintage pattern book bought as a gift, a book on Horrockses dresses, the radness which is Mad Men. Luckily, "Lady-Like '60s" is set to be a trend this summer, using cinched waists, circle skirts and below the knee cuts. It's already been seen in the collections of Louis Vuitton and Prada, among others.
The fabric was of such beautiful quality that I took extra care with this particular dress and did a lot more hand sewing than was required. I felt the beautiful fabric deserved the extra attention.
