so I made this pink bubble dress from some silk dupioni that I was going to use to make curtains or pillows (yes, they would have been some bright-ass curtains. lol.)
anyway, here is the dress which I made from Burda #7983. I was going to draft it, but then I saw this pattern and bought it for $1 so…what can I say, I saved myself some time. ok. the pattern has a strapless bubble with a giant bow or a wide strap 2-layer dress with a front tab. I decided to make the bubble with the tab instead of the bow and to shorten it a LOT… this is what I came up with:
then, as I was going through magazines today…yes, I am in the process of ripping out swipe from all of my magazines…I have a million, and getting rid of them because they take up too much room on my bookcase and I have to make room for more books (lol).
The fun never ends people…and I also categorized the pile of swipe I already ripped that was accumulating on my workspace.
Everyone knows you can’t get down to business (aka 3 dress illustrations for a “springtime Hollywood garden wedding) when everything is in disarray…duh
back to the point-
ok, so in Harper’s Bazaar there was this dress (a $3500 Oscar de la Renta) worn by Cameron Diaz. I think mine is a very comparable knockoff (even if it wasn’t on purpose) so I would like to find a similar print and make another:
so I am going to make this Peter Som dress
from the same pattern I used for the de la Renta dress…so we’ll see how it goes 🙂
