Description

I’d been toying around with various Leg O’Mutton sleeve patterns, trying to see how far I could push the top of the sleeve without it caving in on itself. The rest of the dress just seemed to follow…

This is the first in a collection of five frocks that are being featured in a short film this April.

Material Notes

Lots of interfacing!

    What’s the fabric? It looks like it was a pain to work with. Getting the bust shaping right with shiny, close cuts is sure difficult. Looks like you pulled it off well!

    I love those sleeves. You look like one of Gustav Klimt’s beautiful paintings come alive.
