Yesterday, Patti and I were discussing a particular piece, the Bias-Halter that sold quickly in the boutique, and that we could use a few more. The top is raw almost everywhere and it has a silk charmeuse bias in the plunging neckline. I've been wanting to design a dress using the halter concept with combining the design of the A-Line Bias Skirt. So, last nightI very quickly whipped one up.
Here it is:
The fabric content, I'm uncertain. I'm pretty sure it is a European rayon, which would mean a viscose. I'll do a burn test and and a bleach test to try to determine it's content. It has all the elements of viscose, silk-like, substantial.
The colour is a raspberry, mixed with a touch of cream. I call it Raspberry Coulis.
I am determined today, while wearing it, to decide what elements I enjoy and what elements that drive me crazy about the dress. Hence, P R O T O T Y P E.
Today is a cool and 100% precipitation (that means raining) and this dress is not an appropriate thing to wear. But my guy says he'll drive me to work. He's great. He also says I look great and he thinks the dress is beautiful. What a guy.
