Dress - The dress consists of two layers that are attached to each other at the shoulders and along the zippered seam line. The under dress was made using a pale purple stretch fabric that had a really awesome texture to it. It is an empire waist dress with a form fitting body and a drapey, loose top. The over dress was made using 2 large rectangles that join at the shoulder and have side seams down to the hips that leave a large seam allowance. It is reminiscent of a chiffon but it is more fitted. All the pieces started out as rectangles that I draped over a dress form until I got the right silhouette and fit that I wanted. It was my first draping project and I think it turned out pretty well! Since there are no back seams, the zipper is located on the side.
