Straight Lines and Angles is a series being hosted by Jess from If Only They Would Nap, and I'm honoured to be a part of the wonderful line-up of guests sharing their geometric infused designs. Michael Miller Technicolor Triplet Kryptonite has been sitting in my stash for awhile, and I knew it was the perfect choice for the dress I wanted to make. And because I wanted to really highlight this fabric, my initial thoughts were to design a dress with a princess seam to keep the pattern of the triangles intact.
With some experimentation, I made a partial princess seam, with a gathered panel all around the rest of the dress. There are some glimpses of the pink kona cotton I used for the facings which add some contrast, too. I'm kind of excited about the possibilities for pairing different combinations of fabrics with this design. A few more of these dresses may pop up in Anja's wardrobe this season!
For the closure in the back, I debated whether to use an invisible zipper (my current favourite), but then decided to go with a partially exposed regular zipper to incorporate a 'straight line' as part of the design.
