My very first dress. Several years ago now… ’06 I think?
A very short skirt swoops up in the front, only to be covered by a gathered panel. Intended to highlight one’s stems.
A great shape for summer, but I honestly wear it more frequently in the fall due to its color. Tights and leggings work beautifully with it.
The fabric was salvaged from a giant, thrifted, rayon muumuu. Basically I made the smallest dress ever, from the biggest dress ever, though oddly, even the tiny pleated panel took quite a bit of fabric to make. Zips down the back, has multiple darts for fit around bust. Ric rac trim.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
