first, this dress looks more complicated than it is. it’s basically a wrap dress.
the dress is made from a dark red fabric, and lined with somthing like satin of silk in the same color. my dress is not lined for 2 reasons: 1. i’m lazy, 2. israel is very hot and if this dress will be lind i will probably die during convention.
i got 8 meters of a dark red fabric and has plenty of leftovers.
Step 1: Draping the Pattern
I started by draping the the pattern onto my dressform.
Step 2: The Bodice
then i made a mockup and made some adjustments to my pattern.
i cutted it out of the fabric.
Step 3: The Skirt
the next thing was the skirt. she has kind of a circle skirt, so the top has no gathers or pleats. i’ve made some calculations and cut the skirt panels.
this a wrap dress, so the skirt has two overlapping panels.
Step 4: The Sleeves
the next thing is the sleeves. her sleeves are tight fitting from to above the elbow, and then they become big and fall to the floor.
i started by figuring out the pattern for the tight fitting part, made a mockup and then i cutted the sleeves.
Step 5: The Necklace
first i made a pattern and cut the pieces out of cardboard.
then i covered each piece with hot glue.
i glued the red stone in the middle of one of the pieces.
i took some wire, and bent it and glued it to connect the pieces.
i painted it black, and then gold. than i formed it into shape, and that's it!
