I love this concept! It's got a mood of sea side holidays - sunrise palette, stripes, drop waistline, full circle skirt and even the version of sailor collar! It's like old sailor dress has been given major overhaul. My job is done! I hope fabrics and construction will do justice to my new Seaside Dress.
Going through the dress library, looking for the neckline ideas. In keeping with sea side theme I was considering the sailor collar. Non of the variations seems to work for what I have in mind. They are too rigid and formal looking, I want to fill the sea breath looking at them. Sailor collar 1
Various designs based on sailor collar.
Pink azaleas in spring are the inspiration for this dress. It is impossible to put ideas pin boards, fabric swatches and multitude of sketches into any kind of order. Making a storyboard is a useful technique. It allows me to “sift through” all the components to present the proposed design and possible colour variations.
Patterns are ready by now, and I am rather impatient to see the ready sample.
Update: The dress has arrived. The embodied version of sketchy impression.
Artist's interpretation and the real winter tunic. Story board variations for one dress during the designing stage.
