This design was not my own- I developed a technique that I read about in a couture sewing manual that spoke to the replication of garments. The replication of garments is often done when you have a piece of clothing that fits well and has a great original design, but unfortunately due to time, (and loving it so much) the clothing becomes worn, torn, or the material goes out of style.
For this dress (seen above- Sun dress for the young animal lover), I took apart an old dress piece by piece and transferred the shapes onto new material. When deconstructing a garment it is important to take photos of what the original looked like, that way you wont loose track of how the newly created sections will fit together.
The end-product will leave you with an exact replica of the old piece of clothing, and if you save the old pieces that you used to transfer on to the new ones, you will be able to recreate the garment over and over again!
