Today I was in the art studio from twelve to six creating this gown. I have a big project due in class on Tuesday. I’m sososososo excited for this assignment, and almost going a little crazy with it. These are a few images of the foundation. The gown is made of muslin (an inexpensive fabric used for draping). I made this dress entirely with 8 yards of fabric, no sewing or cutting, just draping and pinning.
I am working on a time lapse film of the process. So you will get to see how I constructed it. I love how the fabric almost looks like a canvas, and now I can start adding the details on top.
