Un Fleur Bombe Dress.

Singapore, Singa...






I used the Tara draft and made it longer into a mini dress for a friend. I found the most beautiful vintage silk fabric that has already ceased production. I was a bit apprehensive of the fabric at first but I think now, I’m more than convinced I made a good risk with it. I was inspired by a couture dress from Chanel’s Spring 2008 showcase of ripped chiffon sewn onto dresses and I decided to adapt a bit of it into the dress. I binded everything with satin bias tape.

The fit of the bust and the sleeves are really odd so I had to make 2 prototypes in muslin cloth before proceeding onto the actual fabric.

Material Notes

Black satin bias tape
Cobalt blue vintage silk with floral print
Elastic cord





Jennifer, as always

Credits to Karl Lagerfeld for the beautiful chiffon couture dress that always inspires.

    It’s Beautiful. I’ve read many comments from other people about the Tara pattern and surprisingly, many dislike flutter sleeves! I don’t get it, I adore them and yours are especially lovely with the trim that you’ve added! If you get any photos of someone wearing this dress, please add them :).
