This was my first attempt at drafting and i made possibly the worst fabric choice in the world: Chiffon. The whole process wasn’t helped by the fact that the dress was cut on the bias so it expanded. I must have ended up hemming it about 4 times, and it was still uneven with the underlining, so much so that it now has a balloon effect. It’s safe to say that the only time I will ever wear this dress will be to a fancy dress party as a fairy. Plus, it’s a bit tight for me so my friend Lauren modeled it instead.
In hindsight, it really would have been a good idea to do a little research on chiffon, but at least i’ll never make the same mistakes again.
On a positive note, it really is very flowy… And it doesn’t look as puffy as I thought it did. Win.
