Self drafted dress in the style of Dior’s 1947 New Look

December 30, 2011

Today I finished my longest and most complicated sewing project ever. I got my hands on a lot of amazing fabric and decided it was time to make that dream dress, the Dior New Look dress!

I drafted the whole thing from scratch, using my own constructed pattern. Here’s how it came out!


I documented a lot of the process in my blog, and there are massive amounts of pictures. Take a look if you like!
