floor sweeper dress of silk and sequins.
This is the first garment I’ve made (read: finished) by just cutting straight into fabric and modelling the pieces together – no paper, no toile! I constructed the middle sequinned section first.

I added the skirt last – it’s fabric that has a perfect drape: smooth, luxurious and rich.
This is the garment for Project Runway Australia’s second challenge. I am sewing-along by completing each week’s challenge before the next week’s show. You can find out more about the challenge, follow my progress, and even join in here
