Grey Reverse Dress

Added Jul 8, 2010

Chicago, Illinoi...






From one of my first collections. I wanted to make something that was classy but yet still really young, because I always hate it when youth is wasted by wearing things that make you look like a mature career woman. There’s the rest of your life for that.

So I put together something that has a high hemline with contrasting glossy iridescent chiffon and completely matte black cotton. I guess I’ve always had a love for chiffon so I just had to use it.

Top has 2-fold symmetry (oh science talk…)so the back is the mirror image of the front.

Material Notes

Chiffon, cotton




Garment Type
Evening Wear, Romantic
Chiffon, Cotton

    Very original and simply chic. From the waist up is superb. If the sheer fabric was continuous down the whole length I would be all over this dress. Great inspiration.
