'New York Groove' dress in Peacock


When I showed my friend Pilgrim Lee this dress, unsure of what she thought about it, I blurted out: "I was going for CBGB in the 80's meets Mad Men". And being a fellow creative type, she understood exactly what I was talking about.

This fabric is wonderful. Photos don't do it justice as it is hard to see that it is a jacquard (63% Polyester/37% Rayon) with black and metallic peacock green thread.

I made this dress unlined and used a neck facing, with an invisible zip closure in the back. Unlike most of my dresses, the darts in the front have been sewn as tucks.

The dress is available online from here.

that dress looks INCREDIBLE in person, and the fabric is so unexpectedly soft. i think most of all, i love the fact that its sparkly, but in an elegant way - thats not easy to do!

Tucks are great a style alternative and yet we hardly remember to use them.
