The Inspiration

I was inspired by all the dresses from the Chanel Fall 2008 Haute Couture collection.  The dress is made with a see through knit that is kind of lace like.  I draped the dress, no pattern.  The dress is entirely sewn by hand using mostly back stitches.  The bow is sewn with running stitches, then was turned inside out and pressed.  The beaded medallion holding the bow was beaded by hand.

The vest is made with lamb fur.  I had a bunch of scrap strips of lamb fur and I pieced it together to make a vest.  The vest is fully lined by hand, and is reversible.


Pattern or design used: My own design
