Description

So I discovered “TR pattern designing” thanks to Anajan. I spent hours and hours trying to make the origami dress, but in the end the whole thing was horrible (wrong fabric, wrong skirt to go with the top… ).
And then it was December the 31st, and I had nothing to wear !!!

My grandma gave me this cushion cover from thailand or somewhere in south east asia, it is quite original but I thought i could use it to copy bhs’s drape-skirt … I absolutely love it, and I’ve been waiting for the right fabric for a long time… (Actually, this fabric wasn’t the best but it worked out).

So that’s what I made! While making the pattern, I forced myself to make things “big”, because I always make everything too small (I’m a small person, and I’m very aware of that!). I ended up with a bigger yoke and bigger spaces between the pleats, and i still prefer bhs’s one. But I like mine too :)
I had to line it, because it was completely transparent!

I didn’t make a waistband because the yoke is so big it looks like a waistband itself… And I was in a rush!

Finally I had a great night, and even though the skirt was a little tight, I danced all night long!

Material Notes

Something like organza… and probably linen lining! And a zipper.
