Description

My school is focusing the fashion show in February around Go Red for Women, and turning in 3 red outfits will get me a free ticket, so this is dress #1 (or maybe #2, but that’s a different matter). I wanted to showcase the fact that I can draft things pretty well, so I drafted the otoshiana drop-hold skirt from Pattern Magic. I was orginally going to make the bodice based on that book’s Crater bodice, but it looked. . .off. Plus, I really wanted to put the focus on the awesomeness of the skirt. To bring some sort of drafting significance in the bodice, I gave it curved parallel double french darts with a v-back. It took a lot of work, and overall I am very happy with the outcome.

      I don’t know of Shingo Sato; I just looked at some pages from Tomoko Nakamichi’s book and went from there.

    Nice dress. I too have the book but I think I need a very strong coffee before I make anything from that book. Well done your dress is lovely and the colour is beautiful. All the best to you:-)

      I was intimidated too at first, but after some playing around, things usually work out :). If you ever have extra time, I find these fun to work with.
