Time for the textile challenge.
I drew my inspiration loosely from Patricia Michaels. I thought about the feathers, and decided that I could “manufacture” that in my “home studio”.
The dress is hot pink on the bottom, and white shirting on the top. I followed my own notes on this one, and used cotton, similar to what the designers’ fabric comes on. (I prefer to work with something stretchy and/or something with more drape. And I am betting the designers would too.)
The pattern has a light feel. I am happy with how it came out.
The back of the dress meets in a “v” but not too low.
I don’t think I’m pushing the envelope this week. But I am happy with the result. I think the dress and the pattern are successful.
How did you do with this challenge? We are getting down to the finalists. And, from here on out, I don’t know what happens!
