Completed: Moth Dress, and looking forward to fall makes!

Happy Friday! Here’s the last of the dresses I made over the summer (that are worth photographing, anyway…tried quite a few patterns that didn’t pan out, derp).

This dress is such a mashup of patterns and self-drafting that I can’t really attribute it to any one pattern. It was designed to showcase the fabric, which honestly is one of my favorite conversational prints from the fabric store I work at. It’s covered in moths and fireflies, and the colorway is a combination of vintage and rustic, using sage green, rust, terracotta, marigold, and cream.

There isn’t much to say about the construction of this dress, other than that it was gratifying, and that the dress is comfortable, and that I probably won’t reproduce it. I’m starting to move away from conversation prints and toward structural/architectural pieces, where loud prints like this one get in the way of showcasing the beauty of the construction and silhouette. These projects are all still in the works, though, so posts will be upcoming! Anyway, here’s a photoshoot, because I felt like it, and this is my blog, and I can subject you to half a dozen pictures of myself if I want to! 😀
