Remember Lauren and her duppion rosette formal dress? She's been very busy this year studying and preparing for her HSC.
Lauren recently emailed me pictures of her HSC Design & Technology major work and said:
"For my major work I decided to design and make a dress which would encapsulate Australia’s national identity and culture. I used Tessuti fabrics for the under dress and bodice detail. For the skirt I purchased the silk from Silksational which I then hand-painted and embellished. In order to ensure versatility, the under dress was designed to be a couture inspired dress. It comprises of 4 different colours of tulle, cream silk dupion and the beautiful cream Valentino silk which was purchased from the Chatswood store. I used a discontinued McCall’s pattern (2799) which I bought off eBay for the bodice and just gathered the tulle for the skirt. I have attached some photos of this under dress and I was wondering if you would possibly be able to post it on your blog so I can gain a range of comments from those who are also interested in dressmaking to help me in my evaluation process?"
Photos of the whole garment are on Lauren's blog .
What do you think?
