I posted this dress some time ago and I asked what you thought about this design. Many people felt it was too much, some thought it looked beautiful. Anyway I promised to do the illustration for you so here it is.
This dress has several details on it. It’s a 6pieces dress with yoke insertion,with side draping accross the back, plus 2 large front applique .(study picture above)
The first thing you do is create the tube for the dress. That’s from the shoulder to the waist. Then you go into the 6 pieces skirt part at the bottom (my last post was on 6-pieces dress. Please go check it out to understand the process.) Now on the tube we insert the yoke, that’s the light net part on the chest area.
The made dress. At this point you have added the sleeve also, but the waist won’t be closed yet because we have to insert the drape and the front applique into the waist.
MAKING THE DRAPE.
Draping is a process of fabric arrangement in an order. For this dress the fabric arrangement on the side is large and loose.
So start folding the fabric. You need about 4 large folds.
Side view of the drape. Note that the drape must get to the back block also.
Cut it to the size you want.
Here is the front applique and the side drapes ready to be fixed on the dress at the waist.
This is how it should look when you are done. It should be sown into the waist.
It goes accross the back.
