I couldn't wait to show off my latest self-drafted dress from my work with pattern making teacher Anita McAdam. I bought this amazing but somewhat overwhelming tribal print fabric a few months ago from Tessuti in Surry Hills. It was love at first sight, but then came the obvious question "What on earth will I do with it?". Teaming it with black was an obvious solution. The result is a flattering, princess seamed frock that is just is little bit out there. The body of the dress is lined to the edge, with unlined three-quarter length sleeves for trans-seasonal comfort.
For those of you who are wondering, those tribal eyes sit well above the bust point. I love the way the print matched along the centre back zip and seam line. I'll be wearing it to a function in Melbourne on Sunday, so will post wearing photos.
