Brigitte Floral Dress

Another dress inspired by the lovely Brigitte Bardot. A delicate feminine design in delicate fabric. A light weight romantic dress, modest and playful. Add a pop of color to your wedding day or honeymoon.

The dress has a scoop neck with dainty cap sleeves. The bodice and sleeves hare lightly gathered and finished with a quarter inch trim. The waist of the bodice is ruched wide in the front and narrowing at the center back. The skirt is a full gathered skirt with a gathered trim hem about knee length.

To make this dress i’ll be using a delicate cotton silk blend in distress rose quartz with a cream floral pattern. The waistband with be made from pure silk. All the buttons will be handmade. The black accents will be make from up-cycling black luxury silk chiffon from a previous dress sample.

Small batch eco-friendly dress with all natural materials breathable, light and airy offering pure comfort are 100% bio degradable and up-cycling repurposing helps minimize waste and energy.

Still in the design phases the finishing trim may vary in color depending on the depth desired in the finished look. The dress may require a softer edging around the neckline so cream or floral might be used in lieu of black.

Patterning this dress started with a basic flat pattern. After determining the bust radius the design lines for the neck and empire waist were drawn and cut. Following, the upper part of the bodice was modified to add gathering.

The basic sleeve was designed to a simple cap sleeve and then modified to add gathers for fullness.

The skirt is a full skirt gathered with an a line silhouette.

Bias tape was cut in black and floral to finish the edges around the bodice and the hemline.

The dress will be finished with a button front closure.
