Here is my final presentation for my CDFP class. The empire waist dress with matching obi belt and jacket.
I created the patterns for the jacket, dress and belt, and then sewed them up! I had fun making this outfit for Ciarra.
The jacket and belt are a faux suede with a reptile like coating, and the dress is 100% cotton with a most awesome Asian inspired print. The print was a repeating diagonal and was not exactly “even”, so lining it up so that the final print on the actual dress smooth, was very frustrating! Sewing with plaid is a snap compared to this. I had to cut the bodice twice so that the layout looked pleasing to the eye. If this was just a sheath dress with no actual waist, it would have been a lot easier. However that was not the assignment here. I enjoyed the challenge!
