Sheath Dress with City Skyline

Hi gang,

I made a sheath dress! I found the most unique and fun fabric at a nearby fabric store. The fabric was so colorful and it had the dopest city skyline. I’m pretty sure it’s NYC. Since, I love visiting NYC so I just had to have this fabric. When I bought the fabric I had no idea of what to make with it. I had the fabric for months before I even decided to work with it. Then it hit me, why not make a sheath dress! How many sheath dresses are out there with a dope skyline?

I made the design on my dress form using draping tape. I then draped with muslin to bring the design to life. This was my first time making a sheath dress and I can’t wait to make more.  Let me know what you guys think.

Let the draping begin.

Darts pinned in place. I made sure to pull the muslin so that it’s snug because this sheath dress will be very fitted.

I used a sharpie to place small dots along the draping tape. I also marked the apex and waist.
