Evaluation – Silk Interlock Dress - Toile
I had previously constructed this toile in calico, and I did not feel that this gave the correct impression of how the dress would fit as it will be made from silk interlock, which has a lot of stretch. For this dress to have the impact I desire it is important it is figure hugging. The design of this dress was inspired by Erdem’s long printed finale dresses.
I thus re-drafted the pattern to make the dress fit to the body and re-made it in jersey. I feel that the dress will have a lot of impact due to the bold digital print I am using on the dress. Due to the print I wanted to keep the actual shape very simple.
