Reading: When the Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka
Jessy, to create all of the dresses you will see today. This one was inspired by this Dior dress and it took awhile for us to pin it all down, since it was so heavy.
Dolce&Gabbana S/S 2011, but we didn't do too well because this dress looks very middle-age to us. It might be the fabric we used or the bottom half. Either way, we scrapped this design and started on another.
Inspired by Emilio Pucci S/S 2011, this dress was our absolute hardest. The fabric kept on bunching without our permission and the pins would fall off of the mannequin on this one. I thought in the end, this was one of our better designs. Jessy did a great job on the back, while I did the front. This is the only one of the dresses, where we actually thought through both the front and back.Oscar de la Renta dress. We weren't allowed to cut the fabric and there weren't any ribbons, so that's why the waist tie is so huge and fluffy.
What did you do on the 4th of July? This post was supposed to be up yesterday, but my computer was acting up, so it couldn't happen...
