I took the Panel dress from Spring 2011 and used leatherette for the center panel and a sueded suiting (or so I’m guessing) for the rest. I was going for something fun and edgy and special fun occasions. I also love that it reminds me of Blade Runner. The geek in me smiles every time I put this dress on.
I cut it shorter and had to alter for a larger chest. I also had to alter the back quite a bit but that’s because of my own personal fit issues, probably unrelated to the pattern.
