Eggplant Dress

Feb 21, 2013

Donna Karan Vogue Pattern.

This was the first dress I actually made a muslin prior to cutting the fashion fabric. This sold me on making muslins. It enables you to check fit and gives you the opportunity for a trial run with tricky techniques. Even with the fashion fabric, I carefully hand-basted the collar and shoulder before stitching on the machine.

    Beautiful job on a complicated pattern. I made this when the pattern first came out and wish I had done a muslin first!

    beautiful, dress, beautifully presented. I have plans to make this one day but possibly with an a-line skirt as I am very tall, never wear heels and don't wear straight skirts as I am already tall and straight. Keep on making gorgeous clothes.

    BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so much for sharing. IF I may ask, what is the fabric, please? It's drop dead gorgeous too! :)
