…these are the color names of the cottons used for this dress.
And that is exactly what I was thinking of as I was stitching it up. Delicious, colorful fruits and a glass of dark red wine (a personal favorite). All while I was thinking of this dress and working with the fabrics, I had images like this one swirling in my mind.
Yum! I just love this color combination and how the dress worked out. I drafted this during KCWC last week and finished it up yesterday.
I’m entering this dress into this weeks challenge at Project Run & Play. The challenge theme this week is: color. Initially when I read that, I thought of bright, bold, loud, big colors. But then I started to think of how color in deeper, more subtle tones can make just as much of an impact. I was inspired by a RTW dress that I saw with a similar color palette and I was sold!
It’s made of quilting cottons, the seams were finished with pinking shears. Normally I serge all my interior seams, but this time I was too
tired lazy to change the thread in my serger.
I started to document the process with the idea of writing a tutorial, but then I got anxious to finish. But I do want to make this dress again. Anyone interested in a tutorial or maybe a digital pattern? If you are, leave a comment and let me know. If enough people are interested, I might write up a tutorial and put the pieces I drafted together for a download.
