April Design: Cocoon Dress

If you remember my March Design, then you are probably sensing a pattern. I’ve been experimenting with new shapes and a new approach to design. Usually, I sketch the style I want to make, then I choose the fabric and draft a pattern. My design process is more organic now, by choosing only my fabric, I sit with my dress form and drape, letting the fabric guide me. Some days are all about trial and error, but when making this dress, it took form right away.
