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.
So I sewed this ...
Based on this model of Burda magazine, however, I made some changes on the way to get the look of the first photo.
Based on this model of Burda magazine of August 2009,
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.
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 ....
