I decided to design and make a dress for the Tessuti awards 2012.
I chose the fabric first which was easy but then I spent weeks trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do with it. I would drape it on my dress form, walk away , come back, drape again. I finally just started sewing and it evolved as I went. I really wanted it to look scarf like as the fabric feels like a scarf. It is so light and flowy. Terrible fabric to sew though! If you make one little mistake you pay for it. The fibres break very easily. Anyway, this is how it turned out. I hope you might give me a vote. http://www.tessutiawards.com.au/entry/353
