Draped Evening Gown

Added Sep 26, 2010

Wien, Austria






For the journeyman examination we had to make an evening-dress with a higher level of difficulty and soooo: here is mine.

As You could see in the past I´d rather cut off my fingers than using poly-materials, neither had the money for a whole silk gown. What should I do? I bought the nicest rayon-lining available for the dress and for an elegant feeling I took some rayon-silk for the underskirt. This is what came out, and I was somehow amazed by how much I liked the action of draping.

Most Seams are made by hand, like the hem and the pleatfixing.

Material Notes

    thank You!! @teia: I only have two male dress-stands, so if I need them for a gown, they usually get a filled bra and different to this foto, usually they get removable wadding hips :-D – but I like the red bra underneath, too (altough I would never be spunky enough to wear it like this) This is also the reason why the hem is uneven at one side: on the right the zipper holds the hip area in place, on the other side the hip falls down an the garment seems longer – well, that´s the tricky part about using a male stand ;-)
