{Project Runway Australia Sew-a-long} the first dress

Finished - here's the first dress

Complies with project brief - single colour; in multiple fabrics; cocktail dress; expresses me!
Approx 11 hours - the designers on the show got 12 hours

The three fabrics are silk satin for the centre fabric. And silk organza has been layered over silk dupion to create the 'matte' side panels.

Like the designers on the show, the COLOUR I worked with is way out of my comfort zone. I haven't seen this much pink since BurdaStyle's Pink & Red Fashion Show .

Does it EXPRESS me? I like structured lines. It echoes the lines of my previous Time Traveller Airlines creation. It is modern classic.

In the SHOOT, (I only just realised) I failed to pan out so you could see the length! It sits just at the knee. And for the doubters - it's a complete garment. Hemmed. Lined. Fitted

Here's the rest of the competitors... do you think I made it through?


  1. nicely done, beautiful inside-out and such a vibrant color choice! What's next?:)

  2. Awesome! that colour looks great on you :)

  3. It's stunning, Passiona! This colour is fabulous with your hair, and the simplicity of the design is perfect with that knockout colour also. Rock on summer cocktail parties!!
