As is, it’s simply not company ready…and I’ve been thinking and pondering on the right way to make it work for my life-style. I’ve religiously visited the gown on style.com. I’ve printed out photos to attempt to seize all of the main points, as well as, the essence of the costume. I finally acquired the “vivid” concept to visit the Ferragamo webpage and watch the dress transfer and see larger footage of it.
After watching the video for the third or fourth time, I finally came up with an thought on how to incorporate the perfect options of the costume…which to me are the supplice neckline…simply not as deep as the unique. The wrapped skirt however not with the slit up to gloryland (can I nonetheless call it that since it isn’t as much a destination because it once was…*LOL*) and of course the houndstooth fabric.
So this is what I got here up with…
I can use my TNT gown pattern to begin with primarily based upon this costume that I made back in June 2007.
Hopefully with all my sample alteration books, I can figure out how one can make the draped panel on the front, which I am utilizing as an alternative of the slitted front skirt. I found a silk twill from Fabric Mart that I will use for this dress…
In watching the video on the Ferragamo site, I now notice that the original costume is made from a midwt silk houndstooth…form of like the one I used in the Dries van Noten combined fabrications costume. My fabric is drapier and lighter but I feel this can work higher for me. I am additionally thinking of including a black waistband as a substitute of making all of it out of the houndstooth and I’ve been going back and forth over whether or not so as to add piping on the neckline.
I do know that this is altering the designer’s imaginative and prescient however I’m calling this series of dresses fajas ferragamo designer impressed. I simply think with out all of the pores and skin displaying, I will end up wanting like one giant blackandwhite test…there needs to be some definition there.
