Origami Dress

This is a new TR Technic I have learned!
I have used linen fabric and that's great to work with when you make pleats like this.
Of course you have to be exactly when sewing the pieces together..
I made the front part first and then decided to combine red and black on the back as well.
I could use red or black skirt for the dress,
but figure out that it would be more interesting with making waves for the skirt :) 

I start with drawing lines on the body and make a pattern for the origami pleats.

This is how it looks like after cutting out the pattern that I made.

The front part is finished.

I choose a Burda pattern for the skirt and draw the wave-lines how I wanted them to be.
To make it fit the upper front I decided to use red in front and black at the back,
and I'm Happy how it turned out! :)

Thanks BurdaStyle for featuring My Dress!
