Liz Claiborne, inspiration...

   The theme proposed by Sew Weekly this week was the inspiration for any American designer,   I had kept this picture in my files by designer Liz Claiborne, it's the 2009 summer collection, so I thought it was time to give a little green light for this model.Photobucket      
      So I sewed this ...
 Photobucket    
         Based on this model of Burda magazine, however, I made some changes on the way to get the look of the first photo.

   Although I was very clear I wanted the beautiful folds brings Burda pattern, so I kept them. But I waste the sleeves and this brought some changes in the pattern and the making of the garment.

  When I tried the dress, I realized that the neckline of the back was very open, there on fabric, so I did a small dart on each side of the back neckline.

  The consequences of these small changes, including without sleeves, was facing re-copy them to adapt to the new shape of dress.

   For now, let's see the details of dress, in fact, a very simple and effective model, without cutting back at the waist, the front cut at the waist line and tummy folds that hide fine (contrary to what I supposed )

  Crew neck snugly to the body.

   The wrong side of the dress ... make the neckline and armholes lining in one piece, with techniques of haute couture.
Photobucket
   I took pictures of the entire process line used in this dress and I'm thinking some tutorials on how to do this, so if you are interested, come by again.

   Well, a new dress hanging in my closet and I go to bed tonight thinking forward accessories  to wear tomorrow  this  dress  ....
              
                    Sweet dreams my dear friends ....

  5. That dress is really pretty. I have that dress on my long to do list. The pleating is so pretty and I like your sleeveless version better than the Burda version with sleeves.

  6. So professional looking. I love the pleats on the front of the skirt. The fabric choice leaves you a lot of choices for shoes and accessories. Can't wait to see it on you!

    The fabric you chose highlights the design much better than the Liz Claiborne dress does.
