This dress is meant to be a display piece – made of a patchwork of cut squares in dupioni and taffeta. Both were sewn to dissolving interfacing with multiple colored threads – including metallic and pink – then soaked in water then pressed. The pieces were then cut and sewn together into a dress. There is one singular front piece and two back panels. The lining is charmeuse. Hand drafted design.
