Brooklyn, New Yo...
Many of us loved the long sleeved maxi dress from a recent post I did on 7 Ways to Wear Green—so I had to make this dress and see the outcome on my own. I plan to wear this dress to a wedding in the summer, it would also suit a bohemian bride as a gown!
I adore the cocoon-like shape of the skirt, the full skirt curves in towards the ankle, making a what could be retro silhouette modern. It would look nice in a print yet the style lines are interesting enough in a solid color. I did an invisible bias tape hem at the bottom and sleeves.
This is my final project as BurdaStyle’s Creative Director and Editor, please see my farewell post here!
Silk crpe, 138 cm (54 1/2 ins) wide: 4.90 – 5.00 – 5.10 – 5.15 – 5.70 m (5 3/8 – 5 1/2 – 5 5/8 – 5 3/4 – 6 1/4 yds).
