Red Couture Jacket and Dress

Added Oct 21, 2013

by pauline alice

Valencia, Spain






I made the jacket and dress for a wedding and was inspired by Dior’s New Look silhouette.
I drafted both pieces. The jacket has a big shawl collar, kimono sleeves, folds in the back and a peplum. It’s made in a deep red satin and lined in a floral rayon.
The dress has a bustier top and a full circle skirt. There is a built-in net corselette for extra support sewn in the bodice.

    This is so beautiful, I love it! :D I love the colour you chose as well, red makes such a bold statement. I like the shoes too. :) How do you get the collar to stay up like that? Interfacing?

      Thank you! Yes, interfacing keeps the collar up!
