the next BIG thing - twinkle sews, wenlan chia
Added Jan 8, 2010
itś one of wenlan chia’s crations in her book Twinkle sews. the skirt is made in the balloon technique while the upper part has a sophisticated way to be bead. between the loops the band is knotted to imitate little diamonds on a necklace.
its a funny dress although its rather bulky with the balloon. I had the main difficulties with reading the instructions in specific sewing english :-) i don’t know yet if the dress is really wearable….
the fabric is somehow embroidered wool . for the lining I used dark blue cotton.
