My Dress for Spring/Summer 2010

I designed and made the dress for myself in 6 hours on Friday for Spring/Summer 2010.

It is inspired by the English Country Garden inspired trends for the season and also the pastel colour tones which are going to be key this Spring.

I have designed a full circle skirt with the front of skirt slightly shorter. Giving the skirt a flowing swing to it when worn. This also reflects the floaty fabric trend for the Summer.

I wore the dress and will be making some more from similar fabrics this week.

The back has three fastenings a Roulaeu button at the neck, a concealed popper at the waist and a hook and eye on opening of the skirt so it has a minimal finish and the back is slightly open to give another feature.
