Description

Oh, I love the fabric! It almost like splashes of paints in a glance, reminds me Jackson Pollock’s contemporary art, except it’s actually a more abstract form of flower print. heheh. The usual price is about RM48 (approx US$14.4) per meter, if I’m not mistaken. I saw this fabric a while ago but when I came back to get it, it wasn’t there. Then, I dug piles of remnant fabrics and found it, only RM30 (approx US$9) 2.6m! Am I lucky or what? :D

Anyways, I modified the sleeves straight, and made the hem shorter.

and yeaap, I should loose the red pants lol :D

    I second the motion that this fabric was BORN to be this dress! It makes me want one in some loud, colourful print too!!!

    This is gorgeous!!! Been a long-time lurker around burdastyle and I’m happy to see another fellow Malaysian (RM was the dead giveaway :D)!!! Where do you find your fabrics? I can hardly find any cotton here. apart from the cotton to make bedsheets/curtains

    This is a spectacular dress. If I saw stranger wearing it on the street I think I would go up to them and comment on it. Don’t lose the red pants, they are cute and clashy, which is great in my books.

    This reminds me of the dress that Kenley Collins made on season 5 of Project Runway . The fabric looks hand painted. Very cute rendition of Celestina! Good job, very good job!

      oh yeah, she painted the fabric herself, right? I love her vintage creations, so cute and flirty. hehe. anyway, thank you! ;)

      Me too! I thought she was a nut case but I liked her stuff very much. This season I am going to try and reproduce my own “runway look” each week with the show. I am really bored I guess. :) and you are very welcome!

      yeah, I thought so too, she can also be annoying at times. and oh, that’s a really good idea! too bad i have to put aside sewing at the moment since my semester has started! just when I got addicted to sewing. wrong timing. hahah.
