Mikaela was inspired by a 50's silhouette and pleated design. It was created first through draping with muslin and transformed with a custom pattern development. I chose a tweed and denim fabric combination for the dress as I feel both are classic and timeless fabrics. They helped to create a modern, sophisticated dress with an exaggerated collar that can be worn in several ways. Below are images of my process and development.
