Sepia Dress

Duesseldorf, Ger...






I looked in the net of a Russian chess collection designer Taisia ​​Kirtsova. Something I have not had for a long time, I could not sleep or eat, I HAD TO HAVE- this dress. It all began with a search for fabric . When I found this dress for me, this print was sold out everywhere, no longer on the market for Dutch products. The only thing that stopped me, I continued to try. I found on the net then a fabric where the colors fit more or less. I bought 4 Pannoux: 2 for the Rock, one on the Bodice, 1 on the cuffs and belt. For cutting the fabric I needed more than 2 hours, 2 hours due to print so complicated. In the end I had back pain :-). Bodice I’ve processed and linning from facing up to Talie poplin … because I did not have the dress thick. I already have the complete lining. Then came autumn .. the dress was not finished. I’ve packed in a box, until the next summer. The summer came …. and my desire was burned out. Nevertheless I finished it, because everything I start, I also bring it to the end. As a basis for pattern for Bodice I’ve used the pattern for the wedding dress from the Burda fashion issue 3 / 2008

      Thank you very much:-)
      I have in fact never been used for a long time for this dress as a blank.
      It was a little over 2 hours. It was a special fabric, a pattern Pannoux, it was half-circle pattern.

    Wow, so viele Kommentare für ein wunderschönes Kleid. Ok, der Stoff gefällt mir nicht so gut, aber das ist ja Geschmackssache. Doch perfekt gearbeitet und ein grandioser Schnitt. Well done.

      :-)) danke! mein mann findet den stoff auch nicht so berauschend.dafür aber mehrere meister finden grade dieses zarte beige-braun wesentlich besser und mehr zu mir passend als original in schwarz-weiß.
      Danke schön für deine meinung!

    fantastic pattern matching! its all beautiful. im a bit confused by the circle skirt? did the fabric come like that or did you slice into it and make it circular by overlaping at the top? great work, and it fits and looks amazing on you!

      The skirt consists of 2 half circles. I have sewn together with two seams.
