From inspiration to final outfit.
Working on the After Dior group created a challenge for me.
First I don't have a crew that can transform my ideas to a finished product.
I do it all.
So I started with an outfit that Galliano's did for Dior Spring/ Summer 2011.
I love everything about this outfit and in the past made some variations of it.
So I started with the skirt.
A silvery fabric that I have no idea where I got from, its silky and soft.
I lined it with a layer of burgundy silk organza and red glitter tulle to give it stiffness, then I hand pleated it.
So step one is done.
Now its time to work on the jacket.
I have a pattern that I used for other outfits in the group and seeing that Galliano used a similar silhouette makes it easier. The group has a wide shawl collar that is embellished with layers of tulle.
I will post the progress in my next blog.
So stay tuned.
