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.
