I'm starting to experiment with new techniques and this was the first one I created using a technique developed by Japanese designer Shingo Sato called Transformational Reconstruction. BurdaStyle also did a webinar on this technique a few months ago and due to being busy with my collection, I just now got around to trying it out.
This technique has quite literally changed my design life!
I will be talking a little next week about the process of pattern making and construction, so stay tuned!
Another side view.
I've also been stash-busting, so you may note that a lot of this fabric is familiar. The blue fabric is indeed from the Castle Dress I made in May. I also used the skirt I made for the Castle dress with this bodice because I liked the shape so much. This is why it pays to save all your patterns, kids!
Other fabric used is from the Sunrise Panel Dress as well as a dress I shortened (by a lot!) in 2012.
Like I said, stay tuned for the tutorial!
