I've wanted a dress with graduated neutral color layers for like, ever. I already owned the original Drifting By dress from Anthro and didn't really need another beige, sleeveless dress , so I wasn't really looking to literally interpret the Drifting By dress as much as I wanted to recreate the layered detailing at the hem in variegated shades. I gotta say, I *squeal* love, love, love how this dress turned out.
What girl doesn't love a dress that makes her feel like a princess? The layers and sleeves were all cut on the bias, so the entire dress flips and swishes in a lovely way.
The colors are quiet and serene, but the texture and detailing guarantee this dress will not hang forgotten in the back of the closet. (I apologize in advance to all my friends for wearing the same dress to your weddings!) I posted a tutorial on how to make these kind of layers here.
Next week, I'll be posting a tutorial on how to insert sleeves like this into a pre-existing dress.
As always...much love, mah dears.
