Hot! Make This Look: Master Mixologist Dress


Original Inspiration



  • To make to bow, cut out two pieces of fabric with this general shape:


Self-face the fabric and then tack to the shape of the bow on the dress. You'll end up with something like this (but hopefully not done in 15 seconds with construction paper).

  4. Now I really have to learn to sew.

  5. Is corduroy really the right fabric choice for that pattern? I understand the color matches the original, but not much else does. If you look at the hem of the original, you can see how lightweight that fabric is…you can see light through it. I just don’t think corduroy (even a light one) would drape in the same way, especially when making that bow.

  6. corduroy? you can see through the original dress, it’s a sheer fabric. I think the recommended corduroy fabric is completely wrong to recreate this dress.

  7. A close-up look at the dress on the Modcloth site shows that it is either a very lightweight tweed or has a tweed-like pattern on lightweight fabric. I’m going to use the pattern suggestion with a silky print I found at Joann.
