I got a bit over-ambitious a while ago and decided that draping was a great thing for a fairly novice stitcher to experiment with. After several partial remakes, I’ve finally made this dress wearable (it became a contest of wills, by the end). There are so many niggles and cover-ups here (hence the sequins), but I think it’s worked rather nicely in the end. I’m quite tempted to remake it again. Third time lucky, after all. And although the mistakes are mostly hidden, I know they’re there…
A pale green georgette I picked up at a bargain price (hence allowing for so many remakes!), with a darker green lining, and green satin in the middle to give the bodice added opacity.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
