I made the jacket and dress for a wedding and was inspired by Dior’s New Look silhouette.
I drafted both pieces. The jacket has a big shawl collar, kimono sleeves, folds in the back and a peplum. It’s made in a deep red satin and lined in a floral rayon.
The dress has a bustier top and a full circle skirt. There is a built-in net corselette for extra support sewn in the bodice.
