Piano Dress

Versatile dress, that’s what I wanted to make.
Lately I use lots of black in my projects. I guess I am ready for coming Autumn, really.
Well, I know it’s going to be hot like this until early Oct. But oh well, at least I can enjoy making fall clothing line.

Summer, Fall

Classic, Evening Wear

    Marvelous idea! The ties could be sewed in many different ways on any sort of sleeveless dress/bodice, and each variation could give different wrapping effects. Bravo!

    Awesome work! This is a great take on the ‘infinity dress’!

    Again, I love the black and white. My fabric combo is the simple fold at the front, the sleeve and the tie at the back. Great concept.

    oow this is the best dress so far you have published. This one looks very good on you/ elegant shape. It doesn’t look like a potato-bag like most dresses do. I think I have to try jersey as well. Thank You.

    Wonderful dress, Ophelia! I love that it is classic, but so versatile. The cap-sleeves are my favourite variation too.

    I love this dress! Very modern and versatile! The idea of adding those ribbons and changing them to get different effects is super cool. The one with the ribbons wrapped around the shoulders to imitate sleeves is my favorite.
