I was attending an award show for different fields of design through my job as graphic designer. I knew I was going to enter the stage to receive my first design award, so I wanted a new dress for the occasion. And what better way to get one, than making it myself?
“Are you really going to make something from this?!”, my boyfriend exclaimed when pulling out the yellow fabric. Actually I was planning to use something totally different, but now, obviously, I had no choice! Therefor I ended up making this crazy yellow dress for the award show, and when you are surrounded by other designers, there are bound to be comments.
The dress is based on a fully lined Vogue pattern. I added the draping to make it more interesting, did a couple of changes in the bodice both front and back, and made my own version at the bottom of the skirt.
