Description

This is my finished dress project for my latest mash up, where I put my own spin on our lovely Vintage Fiore Dress!

I ended up with a different dress than I thought I would have… I made some major design changes half way through the sewing process. I actually ended up omitting the shawl on the dress, and instead I created shawl like wide gathered straps. I tried on the dress and something was missing from the top, so I took some fabric at the center front and created two pleats! I sewed them down and that made the neckline a little bit lower.

I obviously shortened the pattern, I am only 5’2" and the dress would have been a maxi on me. I like the two tiered hemline with the lining shorter than the main fabric. This is my favorite garment I have made so far in 2015.

Material Notes

Mint flocked chiffon, white batiste for the lining
