I decided to stay around after work on Saturday to check out an art gallery show a few studios down and came up with this. I was originally playing with scraps until I realized I was wearing an over sized golf shirt with short shorts to an event (So. Cal. has been having mountain fires so temperatures come in 3 digits.) I dressed it up a bit with a 45 minute cardigan. The purple shirt is a defect sample I sewed up for the designer I work for which is just a simple sleeveless-tee.

Detail shot? It's basically a cardigan bodice with a facing underneath that it is also sewn along on the arm, shoulder, and side seams. I coverstitched tape all along the edges and neck line and did a bad hem job.

And this is what I was playing around with before I decided to sew something up. No cutting, no sewing, just pins and scraps. It was fun draping it, and I bet it'd be fun making it... in the near future I hope.

Well, thanks for looking! Have a nice day!

the cardigan looks so soft and has that perfect slouchy-but-not-baggy fit.

and that dress is stunning!
I especially love the fans/folded fabric bits on it

Iggy awesome job on all of it, but i have to say a huge WOWZA on your fanned and draped creation in the last pic.
You have some rockin creativity and style there! Cool

the draped dress looks fantastic. Make it. Please.

Fashion, art, friends, life....

the folded fans with the side collar is an amazingly good idea, think you should make it up

I would do anything for that draped dress, haha! It's absolutely stunning!

And the cardigan is great!
