As known people can watch forever for 3 things: running water, fire burning and how other people work. I like to spy myself because sometimes I can catch some awesome tricks in sewing process.
A lot of people asked me to show sewing process of recent Dolce-Gabbana embroidered dress from Spring-Summer 2017 collection. Lucky me I took pictures during the process.
Ok, let’s start!
I found a lot of pictures of the dress front, but was enable to find any with back view. Because I sewed another dress from Dolce Gabbana Fall-Winter 2016-2017 collection before, similar in cut, so I decided to use the same pattern for the dress.
It looks like original dress has red lace details, cut and sewed to the dress. I understood that it would be hard to find similar lace in doll scale at first, and I’m too lazy to cut details from the lace (if I find it) and sew to the dress in a proper order. So for me to create an embroidery design was the simplest way to have the dress 🙂
Instead of thousand words…
Hand embroidery and sewing
After my embroidery machine had finished its work, the time to decorate the dress with beads and sequins started for me.
When I decorated the dress front and back, I cut out the details and sewed side seams.
The next step was to sew a golden narrow ribbon to the dress and embellish it with beads.
I made a ring with pompoms and then sewed the ring to the dress decorating the ring’s center with a sequin. After the dress was decorated with pompoms, I sewed it. Unfortunately I didn’t take the pictures of this process but after the process above, believe me, it was not so hard 🙂
I also made tassels (even twice) and sewed them to the finished dress.
Voilà! Lea has the new pretty dress!
