The photograph you see in the listing displays a beautiful example of this dress made from this listed pattern, made by one of my experienced dressmaking customers in New Zealand and it shows her friend modelling the dress. She was one of the finalists in Christchurch (New Zealand) Cup Day Best Dressed! And was filmed for television with a New Zealand icon… Colin Mathura-Jeffree (as seen in picture). He is most definitely quite an icon in New Zealand and Fashionista! He is a model and has been on the Versace catwalk! Has been on New Zealand television as a presenter of New Zealand’s Next Top Model… and making a guest appearance on America’s Next Top model. Colin choose this dress for a special award! What a compliment!

Quite a costly dress regarding materials used, but my customer didn’t want to spare any expense with this one. It took approx. 20hours to complete including several fittings. Made from Black Silk Suiting as the outer Lining: Tartan silk (in raspberry pinks, limes, black). Sash also in the tartan. A tulle petticoat was added as well as the sash. It is a beautiful example of a vintage styled garment made from this Vintage Sewing Pattern. It highlights the interesting dramatic results you can get by using stunning quality fabrics and by using a striking contrast to give it that dramatic look. It demonstrates how one can create such lovely vintage styled fashions from those bygone eras.
