And The Winner Is…

May 14, 2011
Me! I do have a neat new dress.

And Anthea, who will be receiving a size 14 pattern. 

Instead of gathers, I made pleats because the fabric has a certain French Marie-Antoinette vibe that was screaming “please, pleat me”, but also, I absolutely love Watteau pleats. I want Watteau pleats ever since I saw Fanny Ardant turn in her Franca Squarciapino designed purple coat in the movie Colonel Chabert. Now that was an exit!

In fact, I will make this dress again and will make the pleats historically accurate so the back looks more like Petit Main Sauvage’s Watteau
Everybody should be able to make a grand exit once in their lifetime.

  1. Just once? I try for every time I leave a room.

    Very cool dress and the choice for a photo shoot is not lost here… 🙂
