At fashion school, we got the assignment to “drape” paper dresses for different eras. Each group had a different time period to work with and I could convince my group to pick Rococo! Yay!
Our team work worked out great, me doing most of the actual construction (I’m currently working on a real 18th century gown, so I had a certain advantage there) and the other two girls going crazy with the decorations (which is very important for the frilly Rococo style).
We did this thing in about 6 hours, after which we were exhausted but also very content and proud! :)
I’m not sure which category to put this project in, because you can actually wear it (we tried), but it’s still mostly decorative… ;)
If you’re interested in more of my work (including the actual Rococo project), wander on over to my blog :)
