Talented! - Summer Sloper Design Contest

I am very much for design, and without a doubt I love dresses, so I had to give this competition a try!

This dress style is created from the basic top and skirt slopers. It is a preview of my fall/autumn design


The neckline has small scallop edges possible looking like hearts (I am no artist, not drawn to perfection) at the front and back.

Sleeves are shorten to elbow length and I cut a cap sleeve from out of it and them integrated both fabrics to make the sleeves

The skirt has asymmetrical hemline. There is no split at the back. The left side tapered diagonally towards the hemline. The right side has a clean style line that runs from one side to the next side diagonally meeting center front . An invisible zip is enclosed at back.

I love how the style turned out! Photos not that great but I hope all details are seen.

Thanks for viewing :-)

    Nice dress. The fit it has got is simply great. was it a big effort to get the slopers to fit ? I am not sure how different the slopers are form patterns. Hence I ask.

      Thanks You! The slopers fit OK. To me there was no different from the pattern. The only thing is that the slopers are basic and you can use it to create any style you desire.

    Interesting interpretaion: good combination of the fabrics and the asymmetrical hemline on the skirt looks pretty unexpected.
