    Just Showing off a dress I made! (pictures)

    I had a school project where we had to use fabric draping techniques. So my assignment was to make a garment with a single piece of fabric, using minimal cutting. The dress we chose to replicate was difficult so we were able to use 3 separate pieces of fabric BUT they all had to be rectangle, not cut like a pattern. There is one MAJOR (but cool) aspect... WE COULDN'T SEW A STITCH!

    So this dress is made out of 3 rectangle pieces of fabric, straight pins, safety pins, and a single uncut piece of crinoline (for under the dress) ENJOY!









    I am really proud of it! I hope you guys like it! We also had to do the display or setting rather around the mannequin... Its not the best but it was done in a short period of time.

    I am impressed too, never would guess that it has no sewing on it.

    Forgive me if I sound dumb, but what does exhibit entail?

    Exhibit can be a million things. Like retail window displays, New York has some of the most amazing displays... It can also be set design, I met a lady who built part of the set for one of those space t.v shows (like Star Trek but not that one) it was kind of interesting. I can also be museum exhibits or... well anything 3D I guess. I am soooo bad at explaining it.
