Kirsten Dunst inspired...



After seeing Kirsten Dunst in NY fashion week, I could not stop thinking about her gold sequin dress with cute bow in the front. She paired it with black opaque tights and Prada pumps, and looked so chic. I am used seeing her in casual hipster-ish outfit, so I was kind of taken aback. I did not have time to go get a gold fabric, but I used a polka dot cotton that I had to make this dress.

I drafted the patterns for the upper part, but I gave up when I got to the skirt part. I am too impatient. I did not want to make a complete replica of Kirsten's dress, so I added a ruffle for skirt, and made an exposed zipper closure in the back with deep V-line.

This was the first dress that my mother ever complimented on. She is very critical when it comes to my sewing, but the first word that came out of her was "Kawaii!" (which means "cute" in Japanese), seeing this dress. I am pretty happy about that.

PS by the way how did you do the slideshow?!

This dress is really nice and I like your new picture slideshow. But is there some way of slowing it down a bit. It's hard to see the details of the dress because the photos are moving a bit too fast.

thank you karen! im happy with the result too:)

about the slideshow, i used photoshop to make this. i made 5 different layers, and animated it, and saved it as a GIF doc. hope this helps!
