About My Dress
A commercial pattern
Silk Twill and black beads
Time To Create:
2 weeks - on/off
Dress Influenced By:
I like classic and simple designs and silhouettes, and to use beautiful patterned fabric that is bold and striking.
I chose the silk twill, which I had not used before, and actually found it great to work with. This print is beautiful, sharp and modern, very appropriate for this next season. I did have some dramas, (note picture with pins - the mess!) where the material was, I call it "frilling frou frou", and left and right were not matching at all! DRAMA! So, I had to redo, by darting, and then found, I still had to redo the other side. This was the most difficult part. I used the beads, to make a line to define the back, and give it some texture and sparkle.
Special thank you to Sarah Polios, for the excellent photos! Xxxx
