I made this dress for this year’s Tessuti Awards. Its design was inspired by the current pattern mixing trend. This dress is a blend of Vogue V8280 view A and D with an extra horizontal seam across the back. I made it from two Tessuti silk twills: Spot on Navy and The Navy Line. I underlined with silk organza, lined with silk crepe de chine, inserted an invisible zipper, and added red hem lace for a bit of fun.
If you like the dress, I’d appreciate your “five heart” vote here.
