About My Dress
My own design
Black Stone Stripe/100% Creme Silk/Rayon Lining
Time To Create:
Dress Influenced By:
I started with a completely different design, which I had made, and ended up hating it! So I unpicked it all and set myself the challenge to make a new dress only with what I had. This dress formed and I decided to keep features such as the armhole free to inform design lines. I wanted to make something that'd be different. I'm sick of seeing the same old A line, so decided to add a bit of value to it!
I really wanted to play with manipulating the stripe around the body. The way that fabric can first start as a plain vertical stripe but then pleat and morph to become something so much more!
