As a designer, I love when I am able to be self-expressed with my creations. This dress was created exclusively for the finale of LEGACY – Celebrating the Fabric of Our Culture in Philadelphia, PA. For all you jazz enthusiasts… this one’s for you!
Creating this dress was an extremely long process. I used double-ply silk satin fabric, 1/8″ gold metallic cording, bugle beads and seed beads. There is also a built-in corset and crinoline underneath. Here is design and construction process below;
STEP 1 – sketching all the Jazz band members. (ie. singer, trumpet, bass, piano, drums, etc…)
STEP 2 – laying out and positioning all musicians on the fabric.
STEP 3 – tracing the images on the fabric.
STEP 4 – machine stitching, along the lines and hand hand-sewing the beaded trims to create the artwork on the dress.
