Sporty Glamour Dress

Added Feb 13, 2014

by papermothbal...

Brooklyn, New Yo...






Black textured floral pattern silk with almost a suede feel made in an A-line shape. The yoke is designed in a raglan sleeve with gold metallic lace that continues into an open back for a sporty glamour look. I drafted the pattern and gave it all french seams and hand finishing.

    Beautiful – I can see this being worn by the mysterious and slightly dangerous anti-heroine of some early 20s German expressionist film.

    Gosh I can’t believe how beautiful your nose is! Can you believe I am highlighting such? The styling is superb and the garment is that much more… So pretty .
