This one was a fun one!
I’m starting to experiment with new techniques and this was the first one I created using a technique developed by Japanese designer Shingo Sato called Transformational Reconstruction. BurdaStyle also did a webinar on this technique a few months ago and due to being busy with my collection, I just now got around to trying it out.
I drafted all the patterns for this and will be doing a tutorial on my blog about the making of this dress within the week!
The stripes actually go around the bodice (note the no side seam on the right side of the garment here!) and follow all the way to the back zip.
This technique has quite literally changed my design life!
