TR Party Dress

This is my new TR party dress. The top you can wear different ways as shown on my picture. It’s a Japanese sewing technique which is called Transformation Reconstruction. I have combined the top with a skirt pattern from Marfy design which I like very much. As mostly of you know, I love orange, and together with the black I think it’ s a great match! I made an orange flounce on the lining at the hem to make it fit to the top.

    You version is amazing Ellen. Out of the course I think this was definitely one of the most ‘wearable’ and a lot of scope of incorporating into different garment types!

      Thanks Lindsay! I have mostly made dresses of all the front parts from the course :-) It was a great idea for a jumpsuit!
