Dunedin, New Zea...
Collaboration with my friend – she wanted a 20s style drop waist, semi-fitted dress with a tie, low front and back and maybe lace. And perhaps blue? We drew a few pictures, sent a few texts (we live 900km apart) et voila! A dress is born. I used a basic circle skirt pattern for the bottom, and just drafted the top according to Alex’s measurements, mostly just using a dressmaker’s model.
Blue chiffon. Black chiffon tie. Underdress (attached) made from a vintage slip with a lace bottom, turned upside down, fitted and an extra layer of chiffon skirt on the bottom (the skirt is just a full circle).
