The Green Dress

...shortly after the winter holidays i had mentioned that i would show you a few pictures of the green dress i made alongside Katherine Penfold over the holidays. well, here it is!




...we had about 1 week to complete the dress so that katherine could wear it to a performance, she's a singer like i had mentioned before. i have not had many opportunities to make clothing and was a little nervous but thought it would be a fun project, especially with help. then katherine mentioned she'd rather not use a pattern because that's the way she always goes about making all her dresses!



...we were heavily inspired by a dress worn by Keira Knightley in the movie Atonement. we lucked out with the fabric, finding a very low priced source in vancouver, where we were at the time.



...we also had a lot of help from Holly, my mother-in-law whose help was paramount in the design and construction of this garment. hopefully katherine will be able to wear this dress a few more times.
