1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / shape of dress? on: May 07, 2010 07:52:54 PM
I'm really quite fond of these dresses, but I, as many crafters before me, cannot afford the price tag and am interested in sewing something similar.

My questions:
What shape is the second dress in? Is there a name? Frock shape, perhaps?
Is the first dress constructed of a yoke attached to a slightly angled-out rectangle with sleeves that are somewhat attached?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / phillip lim's pleated dress? on: June 26, 2009 10:07:27 AM
Keira Knightley wore this dress some months ago to a Letterman interview. It looks like a simple sheath dress, but how are the pleats created?

Here is a picture of Knightley wearing it:

Appears to have the same pleats:
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Madeleine Vionnet dress pattern questions.. on: February 15, 2009 08:13:44 PM
I saw this website: http://dept.kent.edu/museum/exhibit/spirals/vionnet.htm
I am becoming a fan of Vionnet's work. I especially like number 2. However, I have a few questions.

Would it be okay just to scale the small pictures into a size more appropriate for human-wear?
Also, would you seam the edges of the fabric? Would it cause it to lose drape?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 1940s dress pattern? on: January 15, 2009 05:27:34 PM

I very much like this dress.. apparently it was worn by Susan Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia, but it was very quick. How would I go about sewing it? Is it a typical dress from the 1940s? Pattern suggestions?

I saw this on fashion-era.com. I very much like the dress on the right. Do you have any pattern suggestions or general guidelines as to how I would create it?

Also, I do have a lovely green silk print, perhaps enough to create a skirt. Any ideas with regard to creating a 20s-era skirt with it?

Sorry if I ask for too much! Smiley
