i made this sketch for a competition (burda/german ELLE) i mailed in a day late i found out later….;((

but hey i will make it anyway.

here to the idea: a doublefaced (white/pink) silk cottonblend as base and then add manymany origamifolded fabricflowers( in different fabrics) to one side. the back and the waistline should be folded as well in “magicball-folding”
on the butt the basefabric is folded into a big flower t9o give it some attention…;)

this is my dream about it…..loooooots of work but maybe i´ll do it one day….

Material Notes

cotton silkblend satin organza

    great sketch! wish I could draw… check out they have monthly contests where you submit a design/sketch and if you win they turn it into a pattern for the members to use!
