Current Project - Evening Dress

Assignment: Create an evening dress. The only requirement is that it be floor-length. Go wild.

Okay, here's my story. These pics are photos of a mock-up. I'm going to be using a plum-colored version of this MariMekko fabric for the design I actually turn it. I wanted to practice with the print, fit, etc before I cut into the fabric I'll really be using.

These are just some ideas I've tried out for the skirt shape. Not sure if I like any of them too much. Will do more draping in the morning. Try to ignore the top if you can, what you're seeing is just the corset base -- I'm going to drape some over that, too.

Let me know what you think!
