Dress blossoming explosion

Added Aug 31, 2011

Las Palmas De Gr...






A dress that looks like a floral explosion. I used a pattern of Burda magazine May/2001, really it’s the pattern of a top, but I reached it to the height of a dress, then I made ​​sure that the hip circumference was appropriate for me. I did this because I was looking for ways to make a simple dress without many breaks in the pattern to keep intact the huge flowers. I call this dress “dress of happiness” because when I use it, people smile me on the street. Yeah! this dress has magical powers ….
And, of course, I painted my tights with the same drawing of flowers as the print dress …

Material Notes

1.50 meters of cotton flowers, 0.25 meters of white cotton, invisible zipper.

    I would be happy wearing that dress too – channeling the late 60’s – wonderful.

    So much fun! You make me think of Peggy from Mad Men, but then on an extravagant day (her clothes are too conservative :)) But, how did you paint on tights?

    What a great dress! I like the fabric and also your shoes with it! I also think that it was a good idea to use a pattern with not so many seamlines!
