I initially bought this fabric to make a dress for New Year’s Eve, using TR technique to make the origami dress. But as you can see in the last picture, the result wasn’t great, I made it too small and it looked awkward (in the dress I wanted to reproduct, the origami takes all the chest and so it looks like a flower just opening…).
Anyway after this big failure, I left the fabric aside for a while, and finally used it for that design!
I drafted the top myself (using a french book, not so good), and for the skirt I used a pattern from lauramendoza, here on Burdastyle.
I tried to modify it because I wanted an A-line skirt with the petals keeping straight, but I was afraid it would show my legs too much, so in the end I came back to almost the original design.
Finally, I’m pretty happy with that dress, except that it comes a little high on the legs between the petals… At least I stitched them together, so they won’t fly around!
