Being busy with my items for De Cirkel van Kleding project I had not so much time for this Burda Style Member Model Challenge: Asymmetric Designer Dress. The deadline was 2nd July.
I have manged to finish it on time – however I am not so pleased with the final result. I was hesitated if I should submit it so I have checked the Burda Style website for other entries. Firstly I have noticed there were only 2 entries, secondly – the deadline is extended till 16th of July! Still chance to join!
This means I still can make few fixes and better pictures and post this dress on website.
Even though this is not my type of dresses I like the idea. I have made it from chiffon (polyester or viscose) and it is underlined with very fine cotton/viscose fabric. What I found strange in this pattern is the shoulder seam and set-in of the sleeve. It is very high. The skirt has no openings/splits – thus not so easy to walk.
If I would make this dress ever again I will for sure adjust the shoulder and make small splits at the side seams of the dress – maybe on the left side with godet, or both sides with inverted pleats. I would probably underlined only top – or I would made simple loos lining. Firt for sure proper muslin.
Anyone making this dress as well? What’s your experience with this model?
