How is 2015 treating you so far?
I am doing fine, trying to get back into my routine after 3 weeks of vacations. And speaking of routine, I should get back to sewing. I have been studying new things I want to make with the fabrics I already have like a lace jacket or a duster.
In the mean time, let me introduce to you this tricolor dress I made a while back. It was one of the first thing I tried to make by myself after graduating from Fashion Design school last year. I got inspired by another sleeveless tunic dress I own that is so easy to wear.
The inspiration: 4 colors sleeveless tunic
So I went to the market and purchase 2 meters of pink and orange fabric ( polyester). I already had a black fabric at home. For the zipper, I used one from an old tee. It took me forever to make the dress, and I am still not satisfied with it totally. The zipper and the sleeves were particularly hard to pull off. Overall, I am just OK with the dress because it really defines me: comfy, colorful, oversize and happy. I think I need more dresses like that in my life (but with more structure aka darts, zipper or button....Sheesh!!!)
So what do you think?
