I made this dress last year actually for my art 2 class. It was my final project, for which we could do anything we pleased. The dress is made out of painting canvas, which was a difficult material to work with, but I wanted something tough and un-feminine to kind of contrast against the design. The top bit wasn't made too well, I tend to let my work deteriorate as I get more and more sleepy
, and the design is just a simple, paneled cocktail dress. I find myself cringing slightly at the photos, oh well, i suppose i really should start trying to use patterns. I painted the design after sewing it, its supposed to look like cherry blossoms. I sort of cheated on the crumpled canvas flowers and hot glued them together
, although they are sewn onto the dress. It's not a practical dress at all and not comfy in the slightest. It's more art than wearable fashion I suppose.
PS. please excuse the dark photos and and the extremely sleepy and dark eyes
PPS. I hope this works, I haven't posted on here before and am somewhat computer illiterate. Sorry if I mess it up.
