I have a heavy meeting schedule coming up for the rest of the month and I wanted a new black outfit to add to the mix. Since I also needed a Mood project for this month, I started looking at dresses on Style.com to see if anything piqued my interest.
Ever since Michelle Obama wore a Barbara Tfank outfit, she's been added to my list of designers I check when new collections come out. In the Resort 2014 collection I found these two dresses that screamed great summer dress to me...
I decided to choose design features from both dresses to make one amazing dress for me. First can I say that this silhouette is out of the norm for me. However, I'm in the mood to mix it up a little and full skirts just say comfort to me especially in the summer.
So using this black linen scored from the Moods NYC store (but it can also be found online here):
I using my TNT dress from Butterick 5147 as the starting point.
I'm working out pattern alterations and how I'm going to construct the dress now, so stay tuned for more on the making of this designer interpretation.
...as always more later!
