Right now it's just some fabric pinned to the dress form, but what I'm trying to do here is the brilliant dress from Burda magazine's March issue.
Burda totally outdid themselves with this vintage inspired gem. Melissa of Fehr Trade has already made a wonderful Atonement inspired version and I will also take my cue from a movie with a strong costume department - Henry and June (the actual movie is a bit corny, but I only watch it for the dresses ;) )
The gorgeous Maria de Medeiros as Anaïs Nin in Henry and June. I haven't seen Maria in something for ages, has she done any major movies since Pulp Fiction?
This is the first time I'm sewing in silk/rayon velvet and damn is this fabric hard to deal with! And I haven't even gotten around to the sewing part yet.
