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

    Dreamy! So, so pretty. One question though: where did you get the fabric? I’ve never before seen fabric designed for circle-skirts!
