Macramé Dress

June 10, 2018

This is not a new sew but I never blogged about it. Probably because there’s not much to say, since all I did was the usual FBA, here on princess seams. But I still think this fabric deserves a place here.

It’s the same fabric I used for my StyleArc Poppy Zip jacket (much loved and quite often worn), which I liked so much I ordered another 4 yards thereafter. This is how Vlisco describes it:

Macramé is the beautiful craft of knotting ropes into ornamental designs. Our designer carried this fine craftwork into an extra large, outspoken design that’s an artwork in itself. Just imagine the exquisite fashion results!

This was my inspiration:

And this is my dress, Vogue 1481 by Kay Unger:

They say if you need to wear a specialty bra (in this case a strapless bra, otherwise the straps will show through the back cutout) it’s not appropriate for the office. I don’t care.

    Looks fine for the office to me! Admittedly my office is pretty informal 🙂 I do like the back and how you made it work with the pattern.
