This dress was born out of a crazy frenzy I had in preparation for a small fashion show I was taking part in. I didn’t feel any of my other dresses were worthy to be walked down the runway, so a day before the dress rehearsal I rushed to the fabric store and bought this. I had no idea what I was gonna do with 2m of multi-colored chiffon but it caught my eye so I just went with my instinct.
It is the easiest thing I’ve ever sewn but definitely my favorite! I realized while making this dress that I work well under pressure :P I didn’t use any scissors to make it. I simply passed the fabric from under my legs, attached both ends at the top, and closed off one side of the leg. Then I made a black waist-belt to match. I’ve always firmly believed that when you have nice fabric and you stick to a simple design, you just can’t go wrong!!
The last couple photos show the dress on the beautiful model who walked it down the catwalk for me :) Because it’s entirely chiffon it really flows nicely.
