Here's a quick example of a couple dresses I've made in years past.
Below is a photo from 2007 with my friend Shannon & I both wearing dresses that I made each of us. My dress is a composition of the top of one 1950's pattern with the bottom of another. I LOVED that dress. Shocking purple dupioni silk. I was hot!
- Fabric: Royal Purple Dupioni Silk
- Pattern: Bodice = Vintage Butterick 2488 [circa 1960's], Skirt = Vintage McCall's 5703 (front pleats --> darts)
- Jewelry: designed and created by Me. The Necklace beads are turquoise shot with color. The earrings are colored wood with bits of old LP's.
Shannon's dress is made of skull print quilting cotton and is a pull over wrap dress that can double as an apron
