A few posts ago, I posted about discovering the beautiful world of Dior Robe Miss Dior Haute Couture 1949. I must admit that the beautiful images I discovered have been playing over and over in my mind and tonight I decided to begin creating my version of the tiny little dress.
I quickly found myself immersed in creation and wanted to share with you my progress.
I managed to locate a tiny paper mache dress form on Etsy as my starting point. I covered the paper mache with two layers of vintage fabrics, then placed the proportional lines accordingly, as if the tiny dress form was a life size dress form, I then determined the overall dress sizing based on the dress forms proportions, I then penciled a free form pattern on a piece of millinery fabric. Due to the stiffness of the fabric, I briefly submerged it in water to soften, not thinking, the penciled pattern washed out, so….. I had pencil the pattern again. Thats ok, I’m so IN LOVE with this project, re-doing the pattern again was no problem!
Since I learned of the world of Miss Dior, I will admit that I have been going through my flower stash and I began pulling tiny flowers for this project..
At this point I am in the early stages of flower layout, I will continue to work on this amazing project and keep you posted with the progress.
I hope you like it so far, I DO!
