I made this dress for the Natural fiber Fashion awards at the Henty Machinery Field days this year. I made the pattern of which I’m pretty happy with but I would have liked to have had time for a petticoat, would have looked a little better. It is made of 98% Cotton 2% elastane it has a cotton foundation with steel spring boning, also another layer (yellow) of Cotton (not sure what) that is full length that I stitched the hem to. It is lined in silk satin.
The flowers are made from cotton voil, broadcloth, and the same fabric as the dress. Some are wired with tear drop pearls.
I had to make the dress without any model measurements, which sucked, but it worked out well, she was a bit light on in the bust for the dress, but only just.
I didn’t win :(
Oh well. I had heaps of sun making it though. (the other dress is tho one that won).
Cotton, lining silk
