Flowerbomb Cocktail Dress

Added Jun 4, 2016

Berlin, Germany






I made this dress for a festive reception. After having searched quite a while for an appropriate pattern I gravitated to this one as it allowed me to leave the fabric as much as possible in greater pieces. I did not want to “destroy” the repeating in the pattern.
The flower fabric is a blend of silk and cotton, very light weighted. Therefore, I lined the whole dress with a heavier fabric in a contrast colour. I love the quality of it, because it feels like washed silk and gives more sturdiness to the dress.
Finally I changed the neckline the other way round: lower neckline in the back, higher neckline in the front.

Material Notes

Blend of cotton/silk for the dress, blend of cotton/rayon for the lining, zipper
