My Projects

Double-sided wool Dress

Posted on March 6, 2011 at 9:45 PM

 

Ok here is the dress that I'd put in my list of 10 items for Endless Combination. But It did not happen cause I started my new job earlier than I expected. I stopped at the 9th item. If I had my choice I wanted to start in January not December which was the most busiest month of the year.

  

 I know the fashion trends are now crazy on detail, detail and details. So I ... like right now want to go opposite way which is simple stuff but still make it charming and fresh with accessories used. With the style of Vogue 1208 I want to use a floral brown,beige,dark pink tones to create the tight bow on one shoulder. That would be nice.

 

I feel like finding the way of simple things...I don't know . What do you think? Or maybe I'll put some types of sequinces and beads on top shoulder part then move down bust area  


Fabric used less than 1m left over from the Brown wool Skirt (the 1st item of the Endless Comb. Contest)   

Style: fitted at top down to hip then  A-shape bottom.   


 


Cutting technique: still using simple block cutting basis.

  • Shoulder part a bit wider, over the shoulder bone. Armholes were cut fit, plus I used stretching brown lace for binding. It wrapped around nicely.
  • There were 2 darts at the back for bodice's fitting. I wanted front had a clean look so I could used as many accessories as I could.
  • Neck line was binded brown lace as well.
  • The dress hem was rolled hem. Took advantage of stretching wool I said to myself why did not adjust threads abit to make it tighter and while serger was running I pulled and stretched the egde as much as I could. So here we go the hem had a lot of winding edge.
  • There was no lining for this dress as I love to wear separate underlining dress. 

 

This dress could be a quick project for sewing if you just have 1-2 hours spare time. Cause of simply I finished it just over 1h abit. I was happy with the dress form and style also.
