This is what I wore to Spoonful of Ginger, an annual fundraiser to benefit Asian American diabetes research. I made it specifically for the event because I didn't have anything to wear nor did I feel like shopping. The design was inspired by Delpozo fall/winter 2013 collection, in particular, this red dress! The sleeves were a conscience addition, the lace trim however, was the end result of a measurement miscalculation. A happy accident, because I really love the outcome!
By far, this is the most advanced and time consuming project I've ever attempted. It took me almost an entire week to complete. The most difficult part was the box pleats/scallop details around the waist. Together with Karen from In Stitches, we were able to somewhat figure out the secret behind the construction. Each section was painstakingly hand stitched, not to mention I took it apart several times due to uneven placement. Although no where near the original, I think we did fairly well duplicating it.
