Decently Indecent

Added Oct 4, 2008

by cosmoblue

Los Angeles, Cal...






This is my very first dress project. I had the idea of nudity without being nude and took my details from the idea of spats. I used gussets and godets as a construction theme. All with using green design which is my passion. Pattern is my own based off of a vintage 60s dress I own love.

Material Notes

hemp/silk charmeuse, hemp/cotton denim, zipper, self covered buttons, nylon horsehair braid

    This truly is one of the most extraordinary items Ive ever seen to come out of sewing. I think it belongs on the runway in fact. Not exaggerating!

    Thank you for posting, I’m very inspired
