Dresden, Germany






finally my dress for this semester is done! it´s a plus size collection with the name “BLÜTENrausch”. the english translation is maybe “BLOSSOMS rapture”? I was inspired by the color of the fabric.

the exam is next week where I present my collection and the version I choose to make. I designed, made a pattern and sewed it.

the dress is constructed with a box-pleated balloon skirt and a sleevles top with a standig collar.

    As a Plus Size I wish to congratulate you on your well designed dress. I love it. In fact, I have been looking for a dress just like this! There are so many design elements that cater for the plus size. I especially like the neckline & collar which are so flattering to a larger bust. Also, the stitched down pleats are great for larger hips and thighs. This dress is not at all ‘Nanna-like’ which so many Plus Size designs are. Good luck on your exam.

    I love the details! The top stitching down the front, the pleats & the neckline/colloar…. very beautiful – You should get an “A” on that project!

    It looks great! You’ve done such a good job! I love the color of the thread you used for the topstitching. And the collar is gorgoues. Great pattern! You can be very proud :)

    what a gorgeous colour!

    i like the neck line and how you used a different colour thread – it adds a bit more fun to the dress :)
