Added Mar 30, 2014
I made myself a dress inspired by the existing project, namely the dress from the Autumn/Winter 2013/14 collection by Lena Hoschek but also by 1950’s dresses with gathered fabric on the bust and full skirts.
I used the modified pattern for Betty dress, I changed the front though – made the cache coeur deep v-neckline. The skirt is not pleated this time, but full circle one. The fabric is a gorgeous wool/silk blend (I found it very cheap online and bought some more colours,,, ^^*~~), and as a decoration I added the red piping. The dress has been lined with blue viscose.
More details on my blog.
