I started with this: a red t -shirt with a print that never sold in the shop, a piece of blue jersey material from when I was selling draped dresses, and a piece of brown jersey fabric from a color block project two years ago.
I opened one side of the t-shirt and simply serged the pieces all together. You can also sew them, you don't necessarily need a serger.
I then draped my color blocked fabric on the dress form. I cut here and there, sewed here and there, and this is the result: a color blocked draped dress.
Another view. I love this organic way of designing. No pattern pieces, no predetermined place where each color will go. Just simply seeing where the fabric falls best.
The back view
Has anyone else ever worked this way? Just draping on the dress form?
