Balmain Inspired Sheath Dress
When Balmain hit the runway for the Fall fashion show this year, it had everyone’s attention. Every single detail within each garment was beyond amazing. Every piece was literally wearable art.
As for the dress, I used New Look’s 0167, view B. (I found it at a yard sale) I basically made the dress exactly how the instructions stated. I looked at it and just thought it was quite boring so, I had some extra leather laying around so I decided that I wanted to incorporate it in the dress somehow. I played with a few designs, but ended up with this one. I cut the shoulders of the dress apart and added the leather. I understitched the neckline for the main part of the dress, but for the leather, I topstitched.
