Plus Size Dress/Top, Size 5X, Bright Hand Assembled Fabric
Truly a one-of-a-kind dress or top, for a plus sized woman!
The fabric was created by piecing hundreds of rectangles of a wide variety of fabrics together in long lengths, then assembled by adding black pieces between groupings of color/print fabric lengths.
Each seam has been overlocked, so there will be no fraying of raw edges.
I have included the original sketch as well as shots of the fabric I created before it was cut and sewn together into the dress.
Measurements of the dress are as follows:
Shoulder width (back) - 24.5"
Neckline width (front) - 12.25"
Neckline width (back) - 12"
Armhole depth - 12"
Sleeve length - 14" overarm
Sleeve length - 5.5" underarm
Length from shoulder to hem - 39"
Length from Cntr.Front to hem - 32"
Length from Cntr.Back to hem - 34.5"
Hem circumference - 114" (little over 3yd.)
Bust width - 72"
The 100% cotton fabrics used include Laurel Burch cat and animal prints, Alexander Henry Day of the Dead prints, and many blender fabrics from a variety of high quality fabric houses, and black Kona cotton.
This dress is for a fun loving lady who loves bright colors, and isn't afraid to stand out in a crowd!
It was originally created for a woman in Palm Springs, CA, who fell on hard times, and could not complete the purchase. There are close to 100 different fabrics used, and it took over 50 hours just to create the fabric before it was cut out into the dress you see here.
I really had a good time creating the fabric, as I love bright colors, and making quilts, so this was much like making a quilt top. I pieced a total of 4 yards of 50" wide fabrics.
