From The Studio, Part 2

The hardest part of constructing a garment is the looks you get from your roommates when you pass up a night of football and beer to drape a bodice.

The pattern work on the garment is really the backbone to this whole dog and pony show.  The pieces, like that of an intricate puzzle, come together to create a single, completed piece.

This week, I’m working on a piece for UV that is incorporating a little bit of lovely lace in our collection.  A simple pencil skirted dress with a draped peplum, and a fitted bodice.  The neckline however is proving to be the problem on this one.

Working with a scallop on the edge of lace can either be your best friend or a complete nightmare.  The end effect, of course, is stunning, but it's all about placement.  The neckline in question begs the question: can you be sexy without being revealing?

Next week, we will be looking at fabrics for this piece.  We’re dreaming of lace and something in a lightweight camel…
