Just around the time I started my fabric design journey, it came to my attention that The Marin Symphony is having a fundraising event next month.
And you know what that means . . . time to make a new dress!
Pictures of this vintage Dior dress have been haunting my dreams for many years, and I have decided to do something about it. So, of course, I needed an oversized floral fabric. And this is what I came up with.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed some of the prep-work for the actual dress. I am trying my hand at draping, and also using pieces from different patterns I am familiar with to get to my ideal design.
There are not very many images of the actual dress, and the print makes visualizing details a bit challenging, but I am going to do my best to create my own version of this gorgeous floral confection!
