I had quite a busy weekend sewing and experimenting with various different things, one of which being Julian Roberts' subtractive pattern cutting. This random technique is so liberating, and you can see results almost immediately. This dress only took about two hours to make, which is incredible considering how complicated it looks.
If I'm honest, I didn't really know how it would turn out (which is why it's such an exciting process). I am so happy with the result. It does have a strange kind of 'sack' hanging on one side, but I think it's a very directional, if a little experimental, dress. Let me know your thoughts - the seams are french seams, but I am thinking of finishing off the armholes and neck neatly and selling it online...any takers?
