Drapey Brown Dress

Added Dec 5, 2008

by chissa83773

British Columbia...






I saw this collar on another dress, was inspired by it and the dress evolved from there. I haven’t committed to the buttons yet.

Material Notes

Brown Cotton/Lycra blend





Me! and my dress form. I didn’t use a pattern.

    I love the color and the button detail. Both really give it a steampunk rusty vibe. Tres chic.

    I agree with CarotteSauvage…. add in some 1940’s sex appeal and voila’ there is your dress! The colour is so beyond delicious! Utterly timeless, I would wear your dress until it was thread-bare. Are you taking orders for it?

    This is absolutly gorgeous. I like the aesthetic of it, bauhaus, Russian constructivist
