Ode to Erdem

Added Nov 6, 2011

London, United K...






Based on the red lace dress from the Erdem Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. I started this project last spring, intending to wear it to a wedding but then life got busy and I put it down until recently so I will have to wait another season to wear it out of the house! I’m itching to make it in the original red.

    This is amazing! You really made a beautiful work with that dress. Did you draft your pattern yourself?

    It is a lovely dress, I like the colour, and I think it will do great for an upcomming Christmas or Newyear party. Maybe with a nice cardigan.

    Lovely…absolutely lovely! This would be stunning in red. How did you do the lace folding/pleating on the bodice?

      Thanks so much. I drafted it on paper using the slash and spread method and transferred it to calico, then played around with it until it fit properly.
