I am quite excited to be finally revealing my lastest DIY project. If it looks familiar, that's because it was inspired by this Asos dress which was sold out immediately after is was seen on Blair from Atlantic-Pacific. I stalked Asos for months but my size never resurfaced. After a few weeks of searching, I was able to get my hands on the same dress in solid red (seen here & here) through eBay!
Although the red is just as cute, I was still not satisfied and wanted to make my own. The idea had been in my head for two years but never followed through until recently. This wasn't nearly as complicated as the Delpozo dress I made a few months back but working without an existing pattern was still not fun. Lots of fittings were involved, especially for the coverlet.
Initially, the coverlet was the only removable part of the dress, but after seeing Jean's DIY dress, I was inspired to do the same. Having the dress as all separate pieces is quite versatile especially when traveling. It gave me more pairing options and for the first time ever, I didn't have to over stuff my suitcase!
