This dress is modeled after a beautiful dress by Juliet Hogan I loved the dress, espicially the material, but I couldn’t afford a $500 dress! So, when I found this reclaimed sari in an indian imports store, I knew immediately what I wanted to make from it. The dress has a delightful print and texture, moving and draping beautifully. The front is hand pinched and there is elastic at the waist (hidden by the belt) to make the skirt fuller. It is fully lined by some red polyester sheet I found at goodwill, however in the future I would make the skirt with a lining that has less body. The lining makes the skirt pouf a bit more than I would like. It has an invisible zipper on the side (which, yes, it is white, as that was the only zipper I had on hand) and I am considering making a sash to go around the waist. I drafted the pattern to maximize the amount of material I could get in the dress. Working with the sari material was pretty tricky because of the size of the material!
We took these photos at the New Guinea Park at Stanford College, there were lots interesting statues, sculptures and other artwork.
