Today, is the last blogpost for Kaisercraft's 2015-2016 design team together. We have been asked to show our favourite creation this term.
This dress was created for CHA - spring 2016. The dress is created over a dress form, with an underskirt and a crinoline over the underskirt. The ruffles are fixed to the crinoline. The dress also has a bustle, which was typical for dresses in the periode from the 1870s to the 1890s.
The pattern for the dress was created over a weekend from copy paper, and the dress itself was created over one evening.
This dress has also traveled around the world. It was sent from Norway to Kaisercraft in Australia by post. Then, it was sent to California in the US to go to CHA. I picked the dress up from CHA, when it was over and brought it back with me to Norway in the hand luggage on the airplane.
It has been a fantastic year with Kaisercraft. Next DT year starts in August with a new design team.
